He was one of the top ringers in Oxfordshire and rang in the cathedral church and others in Oxford. He taught many young people in Ducklington to ring and to help those in Bampton. Margaret is also a ringer and continued to ring in Bampton and for several years has been vice tower captain alongside the captain, Dave Rose.
