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:
- Gary Beard,
- Julia Brunt,
- Di Hart,
- Jo Green,
- Roger Barber (C)
- David Hart
The Bramshott ringers are very grateful to Roger, (District Ringing Master/Tower Captain at Hawkley), who kindly conducted the quarter peal.
