Bell Ringers from St Peter’s Bournemouth and Christchurch Priory rang for the funeral of Ed Stewart at 1.30pm today.

On a personal note, I used to listen to Ed’s show at weekends and have treasured memories of the rare occasions when he played a special track for MY birthday – it was a real priviledge to be able to make a musical contribution to his funeral in return.

We rang Eounds and Call Changes on open bells (not half muffled) today to reflect the fact that the funeral was a celebration of Ed’s life.

A single bell was also tolled as the coffin left the church.
