Bells to Ring out in Remembrance.

The bells of churches, cathedrals and carillons all over the world will ring out to mark the Centenary of the First World War Armistice on 11th November 2018, just as they rang to share the news that the war was over a century ago.

Remembrance Day falls on a Sunday this year, church bells will ring as usual early in the day, in muffled tones as a mark of respect to those who died during the First World War.

In the UK and Europe, bells will ring out in celebration at 12:30 pm GMT. In Australia, they may sound at full strength at 12:30 pm AEDT or at other times in the afternoon and evening. At St Andrew’s the bells will be rung half-muffled before and after the service and at 2:00pm fully opened in joyous celebration. The global bell-ringing community will remember the 1400 bell-ringers who were killed during the war.


Last Wednesday (21st October) our bellringers rang a peal of 5,040 changes which took 2 hours and 43 minutes. Our back and heavier bells came from St Mary and St Nicholas Church at Wilton in Wiltshire, UK. This church was opened on the 21st October 1845 and replaced an older church from which our bells were removed from and hung in the new church. 100 years later the first peal was rung on these bells to celebrate the centenary of the new and present church at Wilton. We have celebrated this peal’s 70th Anniversary with a very historic peal on our back bells, being a first peal for 3 ringers (Julia Stewart, Pete Corlis and Jonathan Laurence), a first inside of the method (Reverse Canterbury Place Minimus) for Margaret Weatherby and a first as conductor for Robert Weatherby Snr.   This is the second peal rung by local ringers in our tower.
