In memory of Alan Phipps 1948-2016 who passed away unexpectedly on 14th May while enjoying himself on a tennis holiday in Corfu. Alan learned to ring at All Saints Maidstone in April 1996 and remained there until the end of 2005 when he moved to Kings Hill and joined the West Malling band where he was involved in teaching. He was also a regular visitor to Aylesford, East Malling, Mereworth and Leeds.
We would like to recognise his contribution to ringing in Kent by raising money to donate a bell in his name to a project. Pat Phipps, 2nd July. Alan was an enthusiastic supporter of the Keltek Trust; on one occasion he found two bells in an antiques shop in West Malling; both were acquired and he subsequently rang on both - the treble at Imber, Wiltshire and the tenor at St Peter's College, Johannesburg. Dave Kelly 2nd July.
March 26th 2017: the target has been reached; future donations will now be put towards the installation of the bell.
