Bramshott ring a quarter peal for BBC Music Day in memory of a friend.

 RINGING EVENT – BBC Music Day – 15th June 2017:

To celebrate the BBC Music Day on 15th June, the bell-ringers at St. Mary’s – Bramshott, rang a Quarter Peal of ‘Grandsire Doubles’,  in memory of Marlene Wright of Limes Close, Bramshott, and her sister and brother-in-law Pamela and Ian Mansell of Dockenfield, all of whom very sadly died following a car accident on  2nd May, whilst on holiday in the Cayman Islands.  Marlene was a good friend and neighbour to Julia (a Bramshott ringer) and also to many in the church and community. The Quarter Peal was rung half-muffled, to commemorate the memory of Marlene and the ringers hoped it was a fitting tribute to her.   Members from the parish and community came to the church and listened to the ringing.

The ringers  consisted of five from St. Mary’s – Bramshott and one from  St. Peter &  St Paul – Hawkley, (a neighbouring parish).  Both towers help each other out with ringing commitments at their respective churches and have a close relationship with each other.

The Quarter Peal – 1260 Grandsire Doubles:

  1. Gary Beard,
  2. Julia Brunt,
  3. Di Hart,
  4. Jo Green,
  5. Roger Barber (C)
  6. David Hart

The Bramshott ringers are very grateful to Roger, (District Ringing Master/Tower Captain at Hawkley), who kindly conducted the quarter peal.

Di Hart,

Tower Captain,

St. Mary’s  Bramshott.
