May Visitors to St James

Left to right:  front row – Peter Niblett, Cathy Brown, Andrew Hobbis, Catherine Ladd, Gwen Rogers, Alice Heilker, Charley Heilker; second row – Jeff Ladd, Phil Rogers, Ann LeMarachel, Roy LeMarachel, Jay Williams; back – Phil Goodyer.

The visitors, with the exception of UK visitor Peter Niblett, are UK members of the Ancient Society of College Youths who, prior to the practice, rang a peal of Spliced Surprise Major (8 methods).  St James ringers earlier present at the practice but not in the picture were Mary Platt, Ibby Marshall, and Nancy Payne; taking the photograph is Derek Wilsden. The practice ringing covered R&CC through Cambridge and London S Major - a rare opportunity for the local ringers!
