Berrow with Pendock, Eldersfield,
Hollybush and Birtsmorton
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.
