N&E Striking competition

On Saturday afternoon we held the N&E district striking competition at St Mary Magdalene, Enfield.

The local band hosted a fabulous selection of tea, coffee and cakes and the sun shone so it was easy to enjoy listening to each band with the open doors of the church hall.

Dylan Thomas listened from the quietest corner of the churchyard and commented that the bells were very clear, and therefore very unforgiving with every clip noticeable.

Here are the all important results:

Jersey Cup

1st St Augustine Kilburn

2nd St Mary Hendon

3rd St Andrews Enfield

4th St John at Hackney

Novice Cup

1st St Andrews Enfield

2nd St Mary Magdalene Enfield

This means that Kilburn, Hendon and Enfield will be able to enter a band in the inter-district striking competition against the S&W to be held at the Autumn Association Meeting on 21st October.

With thanks to all who entered, to the Enfield extended band who hosted so well and to Dylan for judging.
