2015 - First Peal 300

This year is the 300th anniversary of the first recorded peal on the 2nd May 1715 at St Peters Mancroft in Norwich. To celebrate this event the Surrey Association is supporting a national initiative called 'First Peal 2015' which aims to get 300 first pealers nationally this year, that's double the usual number.

Northern District Master Caroline Prescott started the Surrey effort achieving her first peal on the 10th January at Guildford Cathedral.

All Surrey Association 1st pealers will be featured here and in our newsletter.
