Notwithstanding, it was agreed by all that his judging was free from bias(!) as he placed the bands in the following order:
1st. Grappenhall 19 faults 2nd. Cheadle 22 faults 3rd. Handbridge 30 faults 4th. Port Sunlight 41 faults 5th. Congleton 46 faults
Congratulations to Grappenhall, their Conductor Nick Thomson seen here being presented with the trophy by the Master. The result meant that the Mid Cheshire Branch had completed the ‘Double’ as they had earlier also won the Inter-Branch 8-Bell Competition.
After the competition we were all treated to a most appetising barbecue expertly prepared by Peter Winder and his family, ably supported by other Stretton Ringers. Overall, an excellent day for Mid Cheshire Branch and Grappenhall and Stretton in particular
