From the CCCBR
More than 1,400 of our bell ringing community laid down their lives for peace in the ‘war to end all wars.’ We know in retrospect that wars were not ‘ended’, but we also know that there is an ever increasing movement to address this. Our fallen bell ringers came from all walks of life, as we ringers still do today (from skilled workers to academics to business people – you name it!), and today we are all united in wanting to ring out a message of peace around the world.
Many of you have been asking: for 2018, the 100-year anniversary of Armistice Day, how will we make this really special for bell ringing?
An number of ideas have been proposed please see attached article including recruiting 1400 new ringers.
