Jim taught the conductor to handle a bell on Friday evenings at the Wragby Practice Nights, learning on the treble (in the old upstairs ringing chamber) before progressing on to the third and then learning method ringing. The conductor had his first bell handling lesson with Jim at Wragby in October 1998 and still remembers the huge pile of boxes he had to stand on to reach the rope, right at the foot of the old staircase. He also remembers how you had to keep a tight rope when ringing Wragby bells from the old ringing chamber with its very low ceiling to make sure the rope did not slip wheel (a frequent occurrence at Wragby)!
Rest in Peace dear friend and keep Ringing the Changes up there!
The band wish to associate local ringer Ron Applewhite with this quarter, Ron was close friends with Jim.

This is Anne’s longest length inside to Bob Doubles, only previously ringing odd 120s. This quarter was organised specially as a focused practice for Anne.
Rung with Anne called unaffected throughout as a first step towards her achieving her goal of ringing a quarter of Bob Doubles inside fully affected. This was a great first step towards achieving that!
The ninth of the Lent quarter peals to give people a chance to ring something they have been learning.

June was a life long resident of Potterhanworth, and a loyal supporter of St Andrew’s Church, being a former member of the PCC and a regular member of the congregation until long term health problems stopped her from being able to get out and about, but even then she continued to support the Church even if she could no longer attend and kept her faith which meant so much to her right up until the end.
June was Sister-in-law to Yvonne Woodcock and Aunty to the Conductor.
She will be greatly missed by all her knew her. She was a lovely kind hearted lady with a deep rooted sense of faith, RIP.

Ted lived all his life in Branston and was married in this Church. Our thoughts are with his Daughter Lynn & Brother Richard at this difficult time.
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!

Specially arrange and rung by the local band to celebrate the 150th anniversary this day of ‘Hermit’ winning (odds 66-1) the 1867 Epsom Derby.
Hermit was a thoroughbred racehorse & sire owned by the then owner of Blankney Hall & Estate, the Rt. Hon. Henry Chaplin, 1st Viscount Chaplin, of Saint Oswald's, Blankney, in the County of Lincoln.
A few years after his success at The Derby, Hermit was retired from racing to stud at Blankney Hall where he spent the rest of his life until his death in 1890.
The Blankney thoroughbreds including Hermit were exercised on the gallops in Blankney Park (now the 15th fairway of Blankney Golf Club) and trained along the carriageway through Blankney Park (once the main driveway/grand approach to Blankney Hall) which had a bend incorporated into it (which still exists today running through the golf course) to allow the thoroughbreds to ‘get the feel of the bend at Epson’s Tattenham Corner’.
Following the success of Hermit at the Derby there was much rejoicing in Blankney including the ringing of the Church bells in celebration!
Rung missing the fifth out due to a broken clapper.
Rung also marking the 94th anniversary of the death of Henry Chaplin, 1st Viscount Chaplin, owner of Blankney Hall and the Blankney Estate, who died 29th May 1923.

Rung by the local band prior to the Annual Oddfellows Service. Inside Nocton Church hangs the banner of the ‘Loyal Ripon Lodge’ of the Oddfellows. The Loyal Ripon Lodge was set up for Nocton & Dunston in 1840 and gained its name to the local connection with the Earl of Ripon who lived at Nocton Hall.
Whilst this ringing was taking place the Oddfellows Processed from the Village Hall to the Church for the service.
A quarter peal on five (minus the treble ringer) was attempt prior to the service but came to grief early on and the band decided it was too hot and muggy to try again so general ringing took place instead.
Rung also marking the anniversary of the death of His Excellency, The Most Honourable, George Frederick Samuel Robinson, first Marquess of Ripon, KG. GCSI. CIE. VD. PC. Viceroy and Governor-General of India, who died on 9th July 1909. The Marquess of Ripon inherited Nocton Hall and the Nocton Estate.

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.

The opening was recorded in the Norwich Journal dated 31st October 1789:
“On Friday last a new peal of six bells were opened at Timberland in the County of Lincoln by a society of ringers from Bicker in the said county with the peals of treble and court bob. After much good ringing on that day the gentlemen in the town and neighbourhood met at the Miller’s Arms where the evening was spent with the greatest harmony and satisfaction. The bells were cast and hung by Thomas Osborn of Downham in Norfolk and are allowed by capital Judges to be a very fine peal of bells.”

Rung by the local band with the bells half muffled to mark the centenary of the death of Gunner LESLIE HALKES WRAY who served in “E” Battalion of the Tanks Corps and was killed in action on 20th November 1917 at Cambrai aged 19.
He was driving ‘Ella,’ a 25 tonne Mark IV tank (which of course was designed, tested and built in Lincoln) whilst taking part in the largest and most significant tank battle of the First World War at Cambrai, when he was sadly killed in action on the first day.
He was the son of William & Susan Wray who lived in Nocton. His father William was a farmer at Nocton’s Park Farm, known locally as “Farmer Wray’s Yard”. ‘Wray’s Yard’ still exists today at the top of the road which leads down to the Church, with the farm buildings converted into residential property’s.
He was the ninth Nocton resident to be killed in the Great War.
He is buried at Ribecourt Road Cemetery, Trescault in France and is commemorated in one of the north windows in the nave here at All Saints, which was given by his parents in memory of him. The stained glass depicts the Tank Corps logo along with a WW1 tank & a machine gun (he was in the Machine Gun Corps prior to transferring to the Tank Corps), unusual things to be depicted in Church stained glass.
When You Go Home, Tell Them Of Us And Say, For Your Tomorrow, We Gave Our Today.
Honourable age does not depend on length of days, nor is the number of years a true measure of life.
We were pleased to welcome his family to the joint Remembrance Sunday Service last weekend at Potterhanworth where three generations of Leslie’s family were present, his Nephew, Great Nephew & Great Great Nephew who wore Leslie’s WW1 medals with pride.

‘France 23rd November 1917
Dear Mr and Mrs Wray,
Writing as a member of the crew on behalf of us all. We wish to express our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to you all and much regret to say that your son, Leslie, was killed in action on the Thursday morning the 20th. His death was instantaneous and very sudden. He suffered no pain. We are sorry to have lost such a faithful friend, as he was always so kind to us all, and ever ready to take his part during these very great tasks and hardships. He was well respected by all who knew him. We cannot speak too highly of his good nature and the way he kept his engine. We all had the greatest confidence in him. His officer also fell by his side and we much regret to say that we have lost two of the best friends of the crew. They were both taken by a party and buried close by where they fell on the same day.
Having been his partner in the crew I have taken care of his private belongings, photos etc, and will forward some on if possible at the earliest convenience. I will conclude with deepest and heartfelt sympathy to all.
I am yours faithfully. 91718 Gunr J Glendinning

Dr RICHARD SMITH, Lord of the Manor, (died on 24th November 1602), who set up & founded the Christ’s Hospital Endowment for the young people of this village, originally funding them to attend the Bluecoat school in Lincoln, Christ’s Hospital School which he founded. The Endowment now gives out annual grants to the village children each Christmas Eve towards educational expenses and extra curricular activities.
Revd ARTHUR HENRY ANSON (died 24th November 1859), who was Rector of this Parish from 4th May 1847 up to his death on 24th November 1859. Reverend Anson was a great friend to the village of Potterhanworth and was responsible for the rebuilding of the present Church in 1856, the building of the new village school known as the “Anson School” in 1855 and the re-hanging of the original three bells (the present back three) in 1858.

Especially arranged and rung by the local band in memory of Shirley on what would have been her birthday, after she sadly passed away earlier this year.
Shirley was a local resident who lived in Nocton at the Care Home and who adored the bells and loved hearing them. She would always comment on the bells every week when Liz the Churchwarden went into the home, asking why they had been rung, (and also commenting when they had not been rung)!
This time last year we had the pleasure of ringing a quarter peal specially arranged for Shirley’s birthday (however at the time we had no idea that it would be her last birthday), and she was brought down to the Church and sat and listened to the quarter peal, she was over the moon and said it was the best birthday present ever and that it had made her day! Looking back we are so pleased we managed to arrange and ring the quarter peal last year for her birthday while she was still around to enjoy it!
The sound of the bells meant a lot to Shirley and brought her much enjoyment! She will be sadly missed and we were pleased to be able to remember her this evening by ringing this quarter peal in memory of her!

Rung by a local band with the bells half muffled to commemorate the centenary of the death of Private GEORGE HENRY COOKE, who died of wounds this day (20th December) in 1917 at the age of 29, whilst serving in the Lincolnshire Regiment 2nd/5th Battalion.
George was a ringer at this Church and was the second of two ringers from Metheringham to be killed in the Great War, the first being William Pearson Green (28th June 1916). George (along with William) were two of the nine new ringers learning to ring at Metheringham, being taught by Fred Stokes (Tower Captain at neighbouring Blankney) after Metheringham bells were restored and augmented from 5 to 8 in 1912.
On 20th May 1913 George (along with William) rang in the first Quarter Peal on the bells at Metheringham being Grandsire Triples with George on the third & William on the second, it was the first quarter for all the band except Fred Stokes the conductor (the band being all the new learners). This was followed on 9th August 1913 with George (along with William) ringing in the first Peal on the bells at Metheringham by a local band being Grandsire Triples with George on the third & William on the second, it was the first peal for all the band except Fred Stokes the conductor (the band being the new learners with their teacher conducting it). They followed this up with another peal on 6th June 1914 of Oxford Bob Triples with George on the fourth & William on the second again called by Fred. This was both their last peals before going off too fight in the Great War.
George (along with William) were both members of the Lincoln Diocesan Guild.
Prior to the quarter a candle was lit and a brief account of George was read out followed by the poem 'In Flanders Fields' and finishing with a prayer. The candle was left lit whilst the quarter was rung and following the quarter a bell shaped wreath was laid in memory of George at the War Memorial in the Church.
At the back of Church by the font is a large Brass Baptismal Jug. This was given by George’s Brother & Sister in memory of him and is inscribed as so.

Rung to mark the closure of the historic Whitechapel Bell Foundry earlier this year, bringing an end to over 450 years of bell founding (established 1540) and over 250 years of bell founding at 32-34 Whitechapel Road (purchased 1738/9).
The present peal of six bells here at Nocton were cast complete by George Mears & Co at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in 1865. Mears & Stainbank of Whitechapel were also responsible for rehanging the bells on ball bearings in 1931.
The six bells were given in 1865 by Lady Sarah Albinia Louisa Robinson, Countess of Ripon.
Ian Hasman (ringer of the fourth) is a former bell hanger at Whitechapel.
Rung also to congratulate our friend Joan Simpson, aged 85 (a ringer at Coningsby), on being awarded a B.E.M. (British Empire Medal) in the 2018 New Year’s Honours List for services to the community of Coningsby (which includes her bell ringing & fundraising). Well Done Joan, Well Deserved!
This date touch of 1865 changes was specially chosen to mark the year in which the six bells here were cast at Whitechapel.

Rung to celebrate Christmas prior to the Traditional Langton Candlelit Carol Service on the first Sunday after Chirstmas. The main body of Langton Church has no electric lighting so this was truly a proper candlelit carol service.
The bells at Langton are rung from the ground floor porch area by the main (only) Church door with the congregation walking through the centre of the ropes whilst we rang.
Rung at the special request of Mr Douglas, Churchwarden. The bells were much appreciated by all who attended the service and we were thanked by everyone as they passed through us whilst we rang for a short time as they left.
It is fitting that these bells were rung this evening on New Years Eve, as Tennyson was born just down the road at Somersby and would have heard these bells ringing out as a young boy, inspiring him to write ‘Ring Out Wild Bells’ part of ‘In Memoriam’ which he started in 1834 whilst at Somersby.
‘Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow,
The year is going, let him go, Ring out the false, ring in the true.’
From Tennyson’s ‘In Memoriam’.
