Swinging Bell Call Change Competition 2010 Swinging Bell

Downe - 20th November

Thank you for everyone who took part in the call change competition.

Eight teams took part which is certainly a good effort. Each team paid a 10 entry fee which has raised a good sum towards the refurbishment of the trophy.

The results were as follows:

Position

Tower

Faults

1st

Crayford / Dartford

57%

2nd

Beckenham

50%

3rd

Chelsfield

48%

4th

Horton Kirby

46%

5th

Downe

45%

6th

Erith, Christ Church

35%

7th

Bromley

30%

8th

Eltham

23%

The standard was a lot higher on these deceptively difficult bells than the scores suggest as the judges marked each row as either clean or not. Everyone should be proud of how they rang but special congratulations must go to the combined Crayford & Dartford team on their success.

Thanks go to the judges, Tim Lynch and Catherine Heathcote, for coming out (and sitting in the cold) and to the Downe ringers for being such excellent hosts.
