Death of John Howard (East Grinstead ringer)

It is with great sadness that we report the death of John Howard on 16 September 2020. 

John for many years was a ringer at East Grinstead and was one of those who was involved in the project to have the eight bells there replaced with a new ten which were then augmented to twelve to mark the centenary of the SCACR in 1985.

He served the Association as Treasurer from 1976 until 1991, during which time the Sussex Churches Bell Restoration Fund was established and the SCACR became a registered charity. He was elected an Honorary Life Member in 1986. John had moved to France a number of years ago and he passed away in hospital in France, during the morning of Wednesday, 16 September.
