Rung half-muffled. The bells went into changes at 2.50pm exactly 75 years after the bomb which destroyed the church and killed 24 Sunday School children and teachers. Don Roberts was a schoolboy at the time. We associate all present St Marychurch ringers with this Quarter, especially Jeanette Thompson whose father, Gerald did not attend Sunday school that afternoon as he wanted to watch Arthur Askey filming locally. "Arthur saved my life!".
