In memory of Becky

Becky Mann   Becky Mann On 23rd August Jill Wigmore, will be completing a charity sky dive at 10,000ft at the tender age of 50 to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK.
She is doing this in memory of local resident ; Becky Mann. Becky was an inspiring member of the Chiddingfold community.
She helped to care for elderly neighbours, was a member of the St Mary’s Church parish, enjoyed socialising with friends in the Crown Inn and successfully ran a local pet and house sitting business.
As many reading this will know, Becky’s lively character and thirst for life was both inspirational and infectious to all who met her.
However, in July 2013 Becky sadly lost her life to bowel cancer following a long 10 year battle with the disease. As a family we are really keen to focus our great loss into something positive in Becky’s memory as well as raise vital awareness about cancer’s second biggest killer.
You can help to raise essential funds for Bowel Cancer UK, in Becky’s memory, by going to http://www.doitforcharity.com/jillw. Here you can give a secure donation online and leave your messages of support.
Please give what you can. Bowel Cancer UK will receive your money quickly and easily and if you are a UK taxpayer an extra 25% in tax will be added to your gift

As a family we would like to thank you in advance for your support.

I've written many pieces in our Parish magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.

By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)

However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive, (loud).
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music does not!

So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your views - More
