70th Anniversary of VE Day: 9th May 2015

Message from Central Council of Church Bell Ringers (CCCBR) President, Chris Mew:

 

A request has been received from Government for bells to be rung to mark the

 

70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE Day)

 

If possible, the desire is for bells to be rung at:

 

11 am on Saturday 9th May

or alternatively at other convenient times over the weekend Friday to Sunday 8th-10th May.

 

Although there are other demands for special ringing coming up we hope that this can be given due support.

The Church of England has also been approached by Government so church authorities should be aware of the reason for additional ringing.
