Death of Peter Dewar (Coleman's Hatch ringer)
Peter Dewar, who started learning to ring at Coleman's Hatch and was part of the 'Ringing Remembers' numbers, sadly passed away on the morning of Wednesday 6th May 2020. He had been admitted to the Princess Royal Hospital at Haywards Heath due to suffering from Motor Neurone Disease but as I understand, also contracted Covid 19, whilst hospitalized.
Peter, unfortunately, due to his declining health, eventually diagnosed as MND, never fully mastered the 'art' of campanology, so hadn't been proposed as a member of SCACR.
However, Peter was most proud to have received his 'Ringing Remembers' badge, which he wore with honour when he joined in with the service ringing at Coleman's Hatch for Armistice Sunday 2018, something he aspired to do, in memory of his Uncle.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
Death of Tony Jones (Horsham ringer)
It is with great sadness that we report the death of Tony Jones on 11th February 2019. He was a long-standing member of the Horsham band.
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
Tony's funeral will be at St Mary's Horsham on Tuesday 10th March 2020: half-muffled ringing from 10:15am, service 11am followed by reception in the Causeway barn afterwards.
