I am very sorry to have to pass on the sad news that Colin Reed died, last week, at the age of 93. Colin was an honorary life member of the Guild and had rung at Balderton for many many years. Please remember Beryl and all the family in your thoughts and prayers.
We regret to announce that Harry Poyner, long-standing ringer, sadly passed away on 11th March, aged 92. He was a peal ringer on church bells and handbells, and over the years he, with his wife Mary, taught many people to ring. He rang at East Retford for ten years from the mid 1960s.
The funeral will be at Whissendine church, Rutland, at 12 noon on Friday 31st March. There will be open ringing from 11am.
