The Landbeach Bell Ringers have just rung the first ever quarter peal of Minimus by a local band.(details here).

This was to celebrate the eightieth birthday of the Rev Brian Macdonald-Milne, Rector of Landbeach 1983-1988. It was a first quarter peal away from cover for Reece Perry and Greg Smith. All the band were taught to ring by Nicholas Small, who conducted the quarter peal

Brian watched us ringing, as did several parishioners. We then shared birthday cake, and the ringers were very touched to receive presents of pots of bulbs from Brian.

The photo shows the band in ringing order (1 Reece Perry, 2 Greg Smith, 3 Barbara Le Gallez, 4 Nicholas Small), with Brian in the middle (click on the photo for a larger version).
