BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS AT TYTHERINGTON
Birthday celebrations started with a quarter
peal of Allendale, rang to celebrate the birthday of David Matthew on Friday 4
The new treble bell and frame was supplied and installed by Taylors of
Loughborough in 1959. The bell is 25.5 inches in diameter, and weighs
approximately 3.5 cwt. The cost of the bell and frame was �250, and to raise
funds the ringers of the 50�s and 60�s went ringing Christmas carols on hand
bells in local pubs around Thornbury and houses in the village, raising about
�10 a year. This never kept up with inflation, and fortunately, a local
benefactor very kindly donated monies to make up the shortfall.
Details of Allendale and Cambridge quarter peals have already been published in the Ringing World, however, details of the Grandsire Doubles are as follows:-
Treble � Val Johnson 2 � Fran Christiansen
3 - Arch Andrews 4 � Andrew Williams
5 - Matthew Johnson (first as conductor) Tenor � Philip Coward
