Post Covid practice

Socially distanced in the Village Hall

I have just returned  from Alton Village Hall after the first full team practice since the start of the COVID Lockdown last year. It was strange to be alone on the journey as my travel buddy, Sue Fraser, passed away earlier this year after a short illness. We used to work together and spent the journey reminiscing. We often got to bell practice in a fit of giggles.

It was so exciting to be together as a team once more. Wendy and Alan had set out the hall so that we had our own table, bells, music stand and, most importantly, our personal copy of the music!

When we started playing the sound was incredible, so different from our small group practices in Wendy and Alan’s garden during lockdown.

It is wonderful to be ringing together again.
