Ringing for VJ Day 15th August 2020

Today was the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day marking the surrender of Japan and the end of the Second World War. To mark this occasion, some of the band met at the church this morning. After ringing up, Duncan tolled the tenor for a few minutes until 11 O’Clock, when we observed 2 minutes silence to remember the fallen.

Then Stephanie, Keith, Peter, and Duncan rang rounds and call changes for the 15 minutes allowed under COVID-19 prevention measures, before ringing down. Graham provided instruction and support.

We rang for a wedding today. This was the first wedding that many of the newer band members had rung for. We had 8 ringers and rang rounds and call changes. Ringing were Graham, Sue, Owen, Keith, Duncan, Jeremy, Stephanie and Wendy.

The previous day, Stephanie, Duncan and Keith had visited the tower to ring the bells up.
