Specially arranged and rung in affectionate memory of Gill Bland (of Heckington, Lincs) who sadly passed away on Monday 11th February 2013.
This quarter was rung immediately prior to the funeral and burial of Gill which took place just down the road at Longholt Wood which is situated on the outskirts of the village and is a natural burial ground.
Our thoughts are with Ian and the rest of the family at this difficult time.
Gill helped the conductor progress with his Surprise Minor ringing and was a good friend, she will be greatly missed.
Netherseale was specially chosen for the quarter as it was one of Gill’s favourite methods.
After the funeral some general ringing took place at Nocton, the other neighbouring village.
First quarter in the method for all the band except the conductor.
Rung with the bells fully muffled for Lent.

Rung on Edward King Day to mark the anniversary of the death of Bishop Edward King, 61st Bishop of Lincoln (1885-1910), who died on 8th March 1910. Edward King was a much loved Bishop and has been described as a Saintly Character, also being known as the “Bishop of the Poor”. He has close connections to this Church as it was whilst he was taking a service here on 4th December 1887 that he was reported to the Archbishop for “Ritualistic Practices” as he had too many lighted candles on the High Altar and faced east away from the congregation when up at the High Altar!
With thanks to Derek Tysoe for standing in at short notice replacing Christine Hasman who was feeling under the weather, we hope she is feeling better soon.
