Promoting excellence in ringing around the world

Welcome Guest

Not The Dinner Day 2014

The first Saturday of February is the Society’s “Not the Dinner Day”, featuring peal attempts at London towers followed by a curry in the evening.

2014’s Not The Dinner Day was well supported.  We were able to field seven peal bands, four 8s, two 10s and a 12 – and all the peals were successful – details below.

After ringing and taking refreshments (as might be expected at the Pride of Spitalfields) 56 members and friends headed for the Sheraz in Brick Lane for a curry supper. We nearly filled the restaurant, but despite our number, the service was prompt; the food was excellent, copious and reasonably priced, and the Sheraz’s bring-a-bottle policy (no corkage charge) kept down the price of drinks. The evening concluded with a final session in the Pride of Spitalfields.

Thanks to the Master Shirley McGill, and Assistant Secretary, Penny Sharpe, for organising the day, and to all those who signed up for and took part in this popular event.
