Farewell quarter peal

The quarter peal that we rang before the evening service on Sunday 15th July was dedicated to Richard Woodward, who is leaving Wokingham to live in Bournmouth. Richard is the third longest serving member of the current band, having been elected in 1982. During his time here, he has served twice as a tower officer – he did a year as Deputy Foreman in 1987, and three years as Secretary in 2005-2007.

The day after the quarter peal, following a shortened early practice, we took Richard and Jill out for a meal, and presented him with a framed print of the church where he has rung for the last thirty years. We wish him well in his retirement, and as he makes new friends, both ringing and non-ringing, in his new home.

John Harrison (July 2012)
