Method Maker **£13.00
A board with six coloured strands and 24 rows of 6 pins. You can weave two leads of plain minor, one of treble bob or two and a bit of doubles.

One Per Learner (Pack of 5) **£5.00
This little book is designed to be your personal companion through the first months of learning to ring church bells. It was written primarily for use by 9-14 year old recruits at Sherbourne, where Pam had for some years struggled with the problem of putting over the theoretical side of ringing, when most elementary books were aimed at adults and are just a mite solid and boring.
