Harry Poyner

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.

The family would appreciate knowing if you plan to attend in order to make catering arrangements.  Please let Hilary know on
