Tributes sounded for bell ringer
7:00pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
There were tributes galore at the King’s Arms in All Cannings on Saturday as veteran bellringer Jim Burry celebrated his 90th birthday.
Mr Burry and his wife Mary were entertained by 50 bellringers, family members and friends at the pub.
Tributes were paid both to Mr Burry and his late father for their many years of bellringing in All Cannings and district.
Mr Burry had been elected as a life member of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Bellringers some years ago in recognition of his significant contribution to the art of campanology. A tribute quarter peal on the All Cannings bells was rung earlier in the morning and a full peal tribute will be rung on All Saints’ Day, November 1.
