RANMOOR RINGERS’ OUTING 1891
| On Monday, July 27th, through the kindness of the
Vicar (Rev. J.
G. Williams), the wardens, sidesmen, and several of the congregation of
the church of St. John the Evangelist, Ranmoor, near Sheffield, the
ringers had their annual outing, the place selected being Southport.
The journey thither was enlivened by the strains of the handbells, the
company arriving shortly a fter 10 o’clock. Owing however, to
unavoidable circumstances, the church bells of Southport could not be
rung before 5.0 p.m., and some of the party having to return the same
day, only a few touches, therefore, could be indulged in.
On the following day, an attempt was made for Holt’s ten-part, which collapsed after ringing 1 hr. 10 mins., the ringers being stationed thus:
J. A. Wright, 1; R. Hill, 2; J, Rimmer, 3; J. Aspinwall, 4;
J. Mulligan (conductor), 5; W. Mellor, 6; W. Fox, 7; R. Collier, 8.
Tenor 10 cwt.
J. Wright hails from Shipley; R Hill and J. Rimmer from Southport; J. Aspinwall from Liverpool ; the remainder from Ranmoor, Sheffield.
They desire, through the medium of this paper, to thank the Vicar, wardens, sidesmen, and other gentlemen who so kindly contributed to their enjoyment; and likewise the Ven. Archdeacon Clark, D.D,, Vicar of Christ Church, Southport, for the use of the bells; and to Mr. Hill and the local ringers generally for their kindness.
