Before joining the School Christine had already had one go at learning to ring, but had given up, not feeling she had ever gained enough confidence with bell control. A friend persuaded her to try again and pointed her in the direction of the School. We went back to first principles and retaught her, taking things at her pace and slowly building her confidence. Once through those early stages things really took off and her progress was rapid. She graduates having rung 6 quarter peals and is a credit to the School.
We won’t be saying goodbye though – she’s signed up to come back as a helper.
