Graham has been ringing for 55 years having learnt at Cossington in Somerset. He moved to Southampton in 1970, Romsey in 1977, Congresbury (Somerset) in 1981 and the Birmingham area in 1992 finally Kineton in Warwickshire in 2006.
Graham’s career was in Insurance, initially in the claims area and then Management retiring early in 2000.
Graham’s ringing mentor was a keen tower grabber in the south west and he caught the bug and has now rung at almost all the ringable towers in the UK as well as some in Canada, USA and Australia.
From very early on he was keen to see bells restored and to teach people how to ring. Most recently Graham has been influential in restoring a number of towers locally and has run a ringing centre doing a lot of teaching.
Graham rings many Quarter peals – almost all to help develop other people – and has rung a total of 2350. He has rung about 370 peals.
