The Guild was active with ringing for the Royal Wedding on April 29th. Here are the details of such ringing your Editor found. I hope it was all the ringing, but unfortunately I think some may not have reached my eyes or ears. If your ringing has been left out and you'd like to see it recorded for posterity, let me know and I will put it in the next issue.
