South & West Striking Competition

The S&W 6-bell striking competition took place at Cranford on Sunday 4th June.  A record eight teams took part, and the judge was Ben Kipling from St Martin-in-the-Fields.  It was particularly good to see a U3A band from Twickenham, some of whom only started to ring in Autumn last year.

This years winner was Staines, second was Acton, and third was Hillingdon.  These three teams will go on to the final at the Association Autumn General Meeting on October 21st at Stepney (St Dunstan).
