This quarter peal was rung in memory of Robert (Bob) Churchill, who passed away on the 25th October, aged 97.
I’d like to say a big thank you to the band. Considering we mostly consisted of 6 bell ringers, I think we did incredibly well. There was some very nice striking, and a first for David on 8 – congratulations! Bob would’ve appreciated this the most.
A bit about Bob:
Bob was a long standing member of our association, who was until recent years, tower captain of Husborne Crawley, and Eversholt.
I first met Bob at Husborne Crawley almost 10 years ago, when I turned up as an eager youngster who could just about handle a bell on my own. Being old school, Bob chucked me in at the deep end with bell ringing jargon, and learning methods, but it is an environment I thrived in, and thoroughly enjoyed.
A few years later, Bob introduced me to the bells of Eversholt. A heavy 6, that were incredibly hard going, with their 100 year old egg-shaped ball bearings, and similar shaped wheels to match.
These bells were in my opinion, the bells closest to Bob’s heart. Most of his later life was dedicated to getting them restored, with fundraising that included bike rides, and selling his poetry books (volumes 3 and 4). Once restored, Bob was in his 90s. However, this didn’t stop him training up a new band of ringers – incredible.
Throughout his life, Bob likely taught countless people how to ring. I was lucky to be one of them, and he certainly made me the ringer I am today.
Thank you Bob.
