120 Cambridge Surprise Minor

3 Christopher C P Woodcock (C)
4 Peter S Lacy
5 John M Lacy
6 Tony W Barker
Rung immediately following the funeral of James A Sutherland ‘Jim’, Tower Captain at this Church for 30 years and Honorary Life Member of the Guild.
The ringers of 1, 3, 4 & 5 were all taught to ring here at Wragby by Jim.
The ringers of 1, 2 & 4 rang in the first peal on the bells (1979) along with Jim after they were rehung in 1974.
Jim left instructions for the band he would have liked to have rung the peal today in memory of him, being the four ringers he taught (1,3,4,5) and Colin & Tony who both have strong connections to ringing at Wragby and to Jim. Unfortunately both Colin & Tony were unable to ring in the peal today, but we did manage to get us all together to ring in this post service touch.
Rest in Peace dear friend and mentor.
