Specially arranged and rung by the local band in affectionate memory of Charles Edward (Ted) Woodcock, Uncle of the treble ringer & brother-in-law to the conductor.
Rung missing the fifth out due to a broken clapper.
Ted’s ashes were scattered yesterday evening just before dusk by the family on the Golf Course here at Blankney which he so loved and where he spent so many happy hours!
Ted was a Vice President of Blankney Golf Club as well as being the longest serving General Club Secretary 1970 – 1988, a Past Club Captain 1968 and a former County President of the Lincolnshire Golf Union 1995-1996 the highest honour, something he was immensely proud of. Ted was also the first Club Champion at Blankney in 1974, and also won the Lincolnshire Senior Championships in succession from 1989 to 1993 at 5 different courses, and won a sixth in 2000 at yet another course, a feat not matched. Ted joined Blankney Golf Club in 1962 being a member for 55 years. Blankney was Ted’s second home, he loved the course and club and had many happy memories. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A fine gentleman who stood by his principles and was not scared to speak his mind!
Welcome back to quarter peal ringing for the treble ringer after being out of ringing since the start of June when he was taken ill.
(Rung also for the Lincoln Diocesan Guild)
