Hurstpierpoint Young Ringers featured in magazine

The Young Ringers of Sussex have received a publicity boost thanks to the March edition of Hurst Magazine.

The article in Hurst Life, the community magazine for the village of Hurstpierpoint, features the 10 strong of band of Young Ringers that frequent the bells of Hurstpierpoint. It’s jointly written by one of their band’s active members, Josh Hutchinson.

It’s an excellent portrayal of the wide variety of activities involved in ringing; from the National Youth Contest, quarter peals, to the weekly practice night’s ‘cake break!’

Well done Josh and Hurspierpoint band!
