Celebrating Harvest-tide in this parish, and as a significant birthday compliment (only one year and three days late!) to Vivien J Smith, Tower Captain of Borden.
Following this quarter peal, the band assembled at Borden to attempt a quarter peal of Grandsire Triples on the famous octave there, but sadly this came to grief early on. The assembled company swelled with the regular band members, a good birthday-celebration was held with capital practice obtained in Cambridge S Minor on the heavy six, Stedman and Grandsire Triples and the usual rounds and call-changes; the company retiring to 'The Maypole' for refreshment, until a late hour.
