Edna Bradley, East Midlands District

Janet Stevenson writes:

I have just been informed of the death of one of East Midlands district most loyal members at the age of 93.

Edna Bradley was a remarkable woman, who learned to ring in her 70s. She only ever rang one quarter peal and that was with the Ladies Guild but she was a great enabler of others. She became tower captain of Clarborough in North Nottinghamshire, and arranged for the teaching of a band from the village. Later her infectious energy and enthusiasm led to the augmentation of the ring of 6 to 8 bells; the two new bells and the necessary changes to the treble and frame being paid for by Edna. The bells are now rung regularly and there is no doubt that this is largely due to Edna. If you ever get to ring at this lovely church spare her a thought.
