Robert learnt to ring in 1985 at St Vedast, Foster Lane in the City of London (where he still rings regularly) and at St Mary, Abbots, Kensington W8. He is a member of the Ancient Society of College Youths and an Additional Member of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers. He lives in Winchester. “Being Editor of the Ringing World is a great a privilege and you certainly feel the weight of history on your shoulders. We have come a long way in the last fourteen years and the RW team is committed to building on the fine legacy of its predecessors. There are many challenges facing us in the 21st Century – but we are determined to meet them and to keep the RW at the heart of the Exercise.”
