John R. Ketteringham's Birthday Reunion 2011

Each year since 2001 I have arranged a peal on the nearest Saturday to my birthday as a reunion with those with whom I used to ring. This year the peal was of Stedman Cinques at Lincoln Cathedral on 29 October which was the day after my 82nd birthday. Unfortunately the conductor was distracted and miscalled the final turning course. Although this was rapidly sorted out and the peal came round it was false!

I always find it very humbling and emotive that my friends travel in many cases long distances to take part in these reunions and I am very grateful to them - it means a great deal to me.

There was also a peal at Caythorpe on the actual day which consisted mostly of those who ring in my Monday morning quarter peals. Also on the Saturday I had arranged the towers for peals at Ingoldmells and Burgh le Marsh and these together with a peal conducted by my friend David Hird at Saltby were credited to my birthday - I am grateful to everyone concerned.
