Rung in celebration of the life of Tom Palmer, on the day of his funeral.
Tom's daughter Anne was present in the church during the quarter and listened throughout. Anne was a ringer and it was she who introduced Tom to ringing, in which he became involved after retiring from farming. Tom Palmer is a much loved and valued member of the LDG Eastern Branch, and a stalwart member of the local bands as well as a tower captain of Butterwick and Freiston churches. Tom Palmer rang a peal at Fishtoft in 1995 with the ringer of 6. Indeed, the ropes with which this quarter was rung were tied onto the wheel by Tom. Plain Bob Doubles was rung as it was a method with which Tom was familiar, by his friends.
The band wishes to associate the following friends of Tom with the quarter, who have not that the chance to ring a quarter for Tom:
Brian Bunting, John Collett, Penny Fountain, Wayne Francis, Annie and Bob Hardwick, Annette Rhodes, Diana Street, Peter Udy, Viv Simpson, Simon Pearson.
