Rung on the sixtieth anniversary of Colin's first peal as conductor, on the same bell in the same tower in the same m/v and in the same time in changes per minute, but on a different floor and with a heavier tenor and a new frame and fittings than the 1961 peal. Rung in conformation with Welsh Covid regulations (half the band being residents of Wales) which, due to time restrictions, precluded a full peal and saved some of the more mature ringers from possible exhaustion or even embarrassment! The ringing was preceded by the Guild Prayer and the names of the original band who are now members of the Glorious Company of Heaven and of our friend John W. Hope who was also a member of the original band but is no longer able to ring.
