Rung open in thanksgiving for the life of John G Gipson, a true friend of all ringers, on the bells he cherished. John rang 1669 peals on these bells, a record for any individual in one Church tower. The band wish to associate Derek Sibson (987), Jane Sibson (723), Michael O'Callaghan (354) and Jane Hough (241) with this peal. The figures in brackets are the number of peals rung with John. The method and composition were John's favourite.
