What an afternoon! Despite all our best efforts the day clashed yet again with the parish school summer fayre. The local Cockermouth/Bridekirk band was not put off and enthusiastically came to the tower ready to offer a fun filled afternoon.
Five Cumbria-based young ringers made the trip down Exeter on the first weekend in July to participate in the Ringing World National Youth Contest.
