Hand Bells for John Stephenson’s 90th Birthday

Bell ringer John Stephenson celebrated his 90th birthday on 6th December 2020.

With current guidelines preventing tower bell ringing, his family organised some hand bell ringing at his home in Romford.

By ringing 2 bells each, Clive and Michelle Stephenson managed a quarter peal of Plain Bob Minimus, with John counting the changes.

Here are full details of the ringing and some photos of the occasion:
