It is with great sadness that we have been informed that Geoff West (ringer & former tower captain at Stedham) died on 12th February 2019 after a very short illness
He was a regular member of St James, Stedham having learned to ring in the mid 1960’s under Don Kirk, the school master. He rang his first ¼ peal along side his daughter Gill on 13th February, 1969 and continued as a ringer and as tower captain until well into his 80’s eventually standing down in 2016. He still wound the clock into his old age.
Geoff's funeral will take place at St James Church on Monday 11th March at 12.00.
