University of London Society of Change Ringers

Roger Bailey Day

This year the Roger Bailey weekend, became the Roger Bailey Day. Although Jemma initially didn’t think there were enough to ring the Quarter, a big group of us attended the day with a band of 8 ringing a Quarter at 10am on the Saturday morning.

The QP rung at Garlickhythe was nearly interrupted! however didn’t stop a great ring on the Jubilee bells. Me and others who weren’t part of the peal, waited at Queens tower in the Imperial college, for the others to arrive at 1pm in the afternoon. As someone who had never rung there before, it was an amazing tower grab to add to the list. After the long walk to the top and a few minutes to have a breather after the 325 steps… we spent a good hour at Queens tower before quenching our thirst with a pub crawl round the Knightsbridge area, organised by Rupert. Many of us ended up lasting til late in the evening and ending up in a Wetherspoons….(of course), before heading home.

Thanks to Jemma and Rupert for organising a fab day out!
