Improving the sound

This video shows some ringing a couple of weeks ago. We have had a sound guide put in so that the bells are easier to hear in the ringing chamber. This does not affect the sound outside the tower, but it makes it easier to ring the bells well.

Here's this morning's band:

Winter graduations

We rang today for graduations in the University of St Andrews, before and after two ceremonies. The ringing was quite good though numbers were low. We're on again tomorrow morning before and after the ceremony.
