Join the national campaign and become a bell ringer in 2018

To commemorate the 1400 bell ringers who died in the First World War, a national campaign has been launched to recruit 1400 new bell ringers.

Many bell ringers joined the war effort, and many lost their lives. Research by The Central Council of Church Bell Ringers has revealed that in total some 1400 bell ringers lost their lives in the Great War.

Bells rang out for the Armistice

When the bells rang out on the 11th November 1918 they announced the end of the most catastrophic war the world had yet seen. At the time, bells were at the heart of the community, marking events of great significance and communicating to people long before modern technology connected us. Bellringing has always had a much wider function than its role in the church, but most of us today are not aware of its broad and inclusive service.

 Join the project and become a bell ringer today in memory of the 1400 who lost their lives.
