Bell Ringing

The bells will be rung at St. Giles from 12:30pm for about 1/2 hour on Nov 11th to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ending of the Great War. This is in line with a national initiative to get bells rung at that time in as many churches as possible.

Christopher O’Mahony, president of the Central Council of Church Bellringers, said:
"The sound of bells pealing in the UK would change from a sombre and solemn 'half-muffled' one in early morning to a more celebratory tone, similar to a wedding, at 12.30. At midday we will take the muffles off the bells and at 12.30 it will be more about celebration. The national mood swings then to gratitude, gratefulness and thanks.”
