THANKS

Wendy Burndred, David and Elizabeth, Liz and Rob and The Girls wish to

say a huge Thank You to everyone for all the kind messages, letters and

cards received following the passing away of their dear and special George.

Also for the many generous donations in remembrance of him for Eldersfield

Church and The Headway Cotswold Trust, Glos. These gifts amounted to

£1500 (including Gift Aid to be recovered) and divided between the two

charities. These are very much appreciated. A Sincere Thank You.

George Burndred – Our Memories

by Brian and Leta Woodcock

In the 1980s when Rev Norman Davies left the Benefice, he took his

Gestetner copier with him and we were faced with the problem of how

to print the Parish magazine. George came to the rescue as his

company in Cheltenham had a Gestetner copier. There was one

proviso – we could go there after work but had to be out by 7.00pm as

after that he would have to pay the cleaners overtime! One evening

we ran into problems with repeated paper jams and stayed well after

the deadline and George ticked us off (with good humour) having had

to pay overtime to his cleaners. We were able to use this facility until

we were able to acquire via Rev John Parkinson a couple of copiers

which were being disposed of from a local hospital.

After George retired he took up bell ringing after a long absence and

soon got back into methods he was familiar with – Plain Bob Doubles

and Grandsire Doubles. He called touches of Grandsire effortlessly

and on one occasion I asked him how he knew when to call the Bobs

and Singles – it was still a mystery to me. His answer was along the

lines of I just know when to call it when I pass the treble. It was not

until a few years ago after George had given up ringing that I suddenly

realised his technique – which I would summarise as “relaxed ringing”.

It was always a pleasure to ring with George.
