As the third of Tony's mature learners I'd echo all that's already been written. The whole experience of learning some of the mysteries of bellringing has been made all the more enjoyable by the continued encouragement and support he's given us. Yes, we got mixed up and yes, we took a long time to get to where we are now, but we'd rather get it right from the start and avoid picking up bad habits. 

I think all 3 of us can now identify when we make mistakes and can correct them more readily without having to be told quite as much. 
Still a way to go, but in true TV talent show parlance, "we've been on a journey"....and I for one have really enjoyed the trip. Gill.
