It is with great sadness to learn of the tragic road accident which took the lives of Pat and Gareth Evans on Monday 13 February. They were very well known and respected by ringers within the Guild and beyond, and will be deeply missed. Our sincere and heartfelt condolences go to their extended family, friends and ringing colleagues.
Their funeral will be at 1pm on Tuesday 28 February at St John’s Church, Workington (this is the Church they worshipped at but is NOT the Church with the bells). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending and Les will liaise with the family to assist with their planning. Attendees of the service are invited to bring a bell that they can ring during the service. Further details can be found here.
We encourage people to link any commemorative ringing to a specially created “in memoriam” event in Bellboard which can be viewed here.
