Rung half-muffled in celebration of the life of Tom Palmer, on the day of his funeral.
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 began ringing after retiring from farming, and during WWII formed part of the Freiston fire brigade. Plain Bob Doubles was rung as it was a method with which Tom was familiar, by his friends. Tom Palmer rang a peal in 1995 at nearby Fishtoft. Many ringers have been recently recounting how Tom would pay them visits and how they enjoyed his company; for example, Tom sometimes enjoyed helping the ringers of 4 and 6 run their windmill when he was passing by.
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.
