Today we rang for the graduation ceemonies in the University of St Andrews. We rang for half an hour at a time, before and after the chapel service and the two Graduation ceremonies. In between ringing, we went out into town for coffee, and we even managed to feed some ducks. There was also some handbell ringing in slack time up the tower.
