Ringing World National Youth Contest
Saturday 2nd July 2016
2016 was a record breaking year with 24 teams from all across the country arriving in London to take part in the RWNYC, including 2 from Sussex - Sussex Young Ringers (SYR) ringing Grandsire Triples and Young Sussex Ringers (YSR) ringing call changes. Three heats with 8 teams in each were held in the morning with the top two going through to the afternoon's final held at St Olave's, Hart Street. Both our teams rang extremely competently in the heat at St Saviour, Pimlico, with SYR going through and YSR narrowly missing out by being placed 3rd. SYR then went on to be placed joint 2nd overall which is a huge achievement! Well done to all 16 ringers who not only produced a high standard of ringing but were true ambassadors for Sussex in their positive and friendly approach.
Congratulations to the Sussex Young Ringers who were declared winners of the South East Regional Striking Competition held at Epsom Common.
They secured first place by ringing a very good touch of Grandsire Triples, with all the other teams ringing call changes.
Well done to Catherine, Rachel, Lysbeth, Rebecca, Reuben, William, Josh and Andrew A.
