BELL RINGING TO CELEBRATE THE CENTENARYOF THE WW1 ARMISTICEAT SANCREED PARISH CHURCH 11 NOVEMBER AT 12.30

Truro Diocesan Guild of Ringers is backing a government project inviting all bell ringers to join the nation in marking the end of the First World War by ringing together on Remembrance Sunday.

Ringing Remembers, which is run jointly by the Big Ideas Company and the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, is aiming to get 1,400 people ringing church bells on the centenary of the Armistice, the number of bell ringers lost in the war.

In Sancreed the local community plan to gather to mark the passing of 100 years since the end of WW1 at 12.30-12.45pm on Sunday, November 11, and the bells of Sancreed Church will be rung to coincide with the nation’s tribute as thousands march past the Cenotaph in London.

Church bells all over Cornwall and the rest of the country will be rung at this time in remembrance of those who have lost their lives in all conflicts. Teas and Coffees will be served at the Mary Williams Hall just south of the church from 11.45am and everyone will be welcome, religious or otherwise.

People will then gather at the war memorial for 12.30pm.

If you would like to read a non denominational and non judgemental piece, remembering those lost in the two World Wars and all the other conflicts please send an email to: hugh.scantlebury@gmail.com.
