2008 SUGCR article extracts

…The Guild was actually established on the 9th October, 1958,…
…The Guild was formed and initially rang on a Tuesday evening at St. John’s, Ranmoor. However, in 1962 the guild’s home tower changed to St. Marie’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in Sheffield city centre. This Cathedral has remained the home of SUGCR for the 46 years that have passed since then….

2008 Original Major by numbers  (extract)

2008 marks the 100th anniversary of the first peal of Original Major. Composed and conducted by a chap called Sam Thomas this was rung on 26th August 1908 at Ranmoor in Sheffield. In terms of what is achieved in this day and age you could think it’s no big deal, but make no mistake; calling a peal of Original Major is still a formidable task and for the ordinary conductor/bob caller it represents quite a feat.
