Arranged for the 5th birthday of Joshua Munnings. A welcome to Katrina Dykes, the Rector since May 2021.
First peal since the start of the pandemic, during which time we remember and give thanks for the lives of:
George Pipe, who learned to ring here in 1943.
Alan Munnings, who was a regular attendee on practice nights for over 50 years.
Dick Pegg, who rang here on Sundays from the 1980's until having to give up ringing due to a shoulder injury.
Right Reverend John Waine, former bishop of this diocese and Chelmsford, who on retirement moved here and regularly officiated at services in the benefice up until his death last year.
