Ringing for VE Day
A request has been received from Government for bells to be rung to mark the 70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE Day).
If possible, the desire is for bells to be rung at 11 am on Saturday 9th May or alternatively at other convenient time over the weekend Friday to Sunday 8th-10th May. Although there are other demands for special ringing coming up we hope that this can be given due support.
The Church of England has also been approached by Government so church authorities should be aware of the reason for additional ringing.

Ringers are advised to check this website before attending a practice or event, particularly one to which they do not normally go.
