RWNYC 2013 in York
We welcomed all 16 teams, their supporters and many of the ringing community to the historic city of York for the third annual Ringing World National Youth Contest.
If you’re from the press, or a media organisation, please see our Press Information page.
As well as the Contest itself, which took place on the excellent light ring of eight at St Lawrence’s, we arranged a full programme for the day including ringing at four of the towers in the city centre (the 6 at St Olave’s, the 8s at St Martin’s and All Saints’ and the 10 at St Wilfrid’s), a mini-ring of 8, handbell workshops and a Treasure Hunt.
A competition was run to write a report of the day and the winning report as published in The Ringing World. The winning report was written by George Vant of Essex Young Eagles and he wins a Kindle and a years subscription to The Ringing World for his report. Runners-up were Caroline Pawley (Bedfordshire), Ellie Sergeant (Lincolnshire Poachers) and Marcus Ham (Bath & Wells) who all win a years online subscription to The Ringing World
