Ringing Remembers

RINGING REMEMBERS

Remembrance Sunday this year is the 100th Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice at the end of the first world war.

Some 1400 bell ringers lost their lives whilst serving their country during the great war, Ringing Remembers is aimed a recruiting this number of new bell ringers. At the latest count over 1800 people have volunteered.

Here at Rainham at least one new ringer has volunteered.

Eight Bell ringers from Rainham served their country during the 1st World War, thankfully, all returned safely.

It is the intention that all churches throughout the country will ring their bells at 12:30pm on Armistice Day. St. Margaret’s bells will be joining in.
