Here’s a statistic for you. 1,400 bell ringers died during the First World War.
One thousand four hundred.
That’s a lot of people, let alone bell ringers. Ringing Remembers is a national project to honour the 1,400 who died for the freedom of our country a century ago, by recruiting 1,400 new ringers this year. There will be a nationwide attempt to ring at all the towers in the country on the weekend of the WWI Armistice on 10/11 November 2018 and you could be part of it. Here in Rendham and Sweffling, we currently have two new recruits who are coming on well and we would love to have more. We practice on a Friday between 6.00 and 7.00pm at Rendham; we have good teachers and are a friendly and welcoming band.
For more information please telephone Jonathan Stevens 01728 664074 or just turn up on a Friday evening to see what we do. More information on Ringing Remembers can be found at www.big-ideas.org
