Hanslope represented the North Bucks branch at the ODG 6-bell striking competition hosted by the Old North Bucks Branch.
Hanslope were second to Drayton St Leonard in the heats held at Cholsey (a fine ring of eight) and progressed through to the final at Aston Tirrold. This ring of six were challenging for all the competing bands, with the treble in particular being very odd-struck. Hanslope came in a very respectable 5th with Roy Keeves’s early command of the treble getting a special mention from the judge. The full results of the final were:
1 High Wycombe – 14 faults
2 Thatcham – 15 faults
3 Wokingham – 19 faults
3 Drayton St Leonard – 19 faults
5 Hanslope – 21 faults
6 Caversham – 60 faults
The next ODG striking competion is the 10-bell, which will be held at Long Crendon on 22nd November.
