Graduation ringing on St Andrew's day

Today we rang for seven sessions, before and after each graduation ceremony as well as before the morning's chapel service.

We rang a quarter peal - the first quarter peal for one of our ringers, an undergraduate at the University. We rang some call-change extents, and some touches of plain bob, Grandsire & other methods.
