“A Peal Appeal” from our founding tower – Waltham on the Wolds

The Society of Framland Ringers was founded in 1875 at Waltham on the Wolds and remains to be an important tower to Framland Ringers.  The local team at Waltham has been led by Tower Captain, John, for over 20 years following in the footsteps of his father.  John started ringing at Waltham when he learnt as a boy still at school. He has taught many ringers over the years maintaining high standards of ringing.

This year John and his wife Christine have much to celebrate.  It was their Golden Wedding Anniversary in March.  It is a double celebration, as John recently successfully completed an 18 week course of chemotherapy.

To mark both events, John will be taking part in a quarter peal at Waltham on the Wolds on Friday 28th April 2017.  There will be a fundraising event in the church for the Macmillan Cancer Support Charity while the quarter peal takes place.  Do come along to support the event.

If you would like to donate to this cause, or for more information, you can do so via the just giving website at: https://www.justgiving.com/apealappeal.

Good luck to John and his team in the quarter peal and many congratulations to John and Christine on your Golden Wedding Anniversary.
