Thanks

St John’s Church, Meopham, RHIAN BAGSHAW. The company of bell ringers at St John’s church, Meopham would like to thank all who so generously gave donations to the bell ringers’ fund in memory of Rhian Bagshaw. Rhian joined the band here at St John’s in 1982. He was elected Tower Captain the following year, a post he was to hold for 35 years until his death. Rhian was a much loved and very successful Tower Captain and under his leadership the band thrived becoming, arguably, the most accomplished in the area. Rhian’s enthusiasm, skill and experience will be greatly missed.           [6001]
