Rung for the Patronal Festival Choral Evensong.
On the 50th anniversary of Chris Pickford's first quarter peal on 16 July 1967 in which Paul Hassan and Michael Robinson also took part. Fred Drabble and Nick Cronin were contemporary members of the King's School Worcester Society. This was the first ringing for Paul and Fred (apart from brief recent practice) for almost fifty years!
Remembering Paul Cattermole who taught Chris, Paul and Fred to ring, and who oversaw the overhaul of these bells in 1966-7 and their rehanging in 1972-3.
