Welcome to the latest issue of Tower Talk, the magazine for ringers on the Learning the Ropes scheme.
This is a special edition for the run up to the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
11 November is always a poignant day for ringers, but this year it is particularly special because it is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice and, on top of that, ringers all around the country are being recruited in the ‘Ringing Remembers’ campaign to honour the 1400 ringers known to have been lost in the Great War. We have taken this opportunity to introduce you to some of our newest ringers who have got involved through Ringing Remembers. There is plenty to read in here, but it’s only a flavour of all the hard work which is going on everywhere to get ready to ‘ring for peace’.
If you or one of your ringing colleagues started (or returned to) ringing since November 2017 then why not sign up for the Armistice 100 band.
