Bellringers’ news, July 2016

editor : October 27, 2016 2:05 pm : Bellringing

After a lengthy illness, one of our ringers John Horsfield died on 1 July. His funeral was held at Holy Trinity on 11 July and fittingly the bells were rung half muffled.

John had been a regular ringer until health became a problem. He then continued until very recently as a hand bell ringer in a group which he and his late wife Enid were instrumental in setting up originally at Holy Trinity.

John was a great friend to us all and we are very saddened at his loss. May he rest in Peace.

Bellringing news, May 2016

editor : May 11, 2016 1:46 pm : Bellringing, Latest

On 6 May six visiting ringers from Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire joined us for our weekly practice. One of them, Fred, said he had rung a quarter peal in our tower some fifty years ago.

Our records showed the date to have been Saturday 28 July 1962 and it was then realised that the visit was recorded on a peal board hanging on our chamber wall. What a surprise for Fred and us all!

We hope it will not be another 50 years, Fred, before you visit us again.

A quarter peal of Cambridge Surprise Major 1280 was successfully rung by members of the N. Wales Association on 9 January  and we are so pleased that they allowed us to dedicate it to Norman Rimmer, Director of Music at Holy Trinity, for his award of the British Empire Medal for services to music.

Ringing in the New Year

admin : January 2, 2016 2:09 pm : Bellringing, Latest

The  bell ringers used to ring the New Year in at midnight on New Year’s Eve but had difficulty getting sufficient ringers. In recent years we have therefore rung at noon on New Year’s Day and this year we did so again.
