Ringing Remembers

The ringers of St James, Ab Kettleby will be taking part in the Armistice Centenary with half-muffled ringing. This will be the first time our six bells will have been rung with half-muffles, as we will be unveiling our brand new set of bell muffles, tailor made for our bells.

The first ringing will be from around 10:30 prior to an Act of Remembrance service which will start at 10:45. The ringers will return at 12:30 to ring as the nation remembers, and coinciding with 10,000 members of the public who will form a procession past the Cenotaph in central London, to pay tribute to those that served during the First World War.

Visiting Ringers

We welcomed a group of visiting ringers to St James’ yesterday lunchtime, who rang an excellent touch of Cambridge Surprise Minor. The visitors also included representatives of the Keltek Trust (who arranged for the donation of the tenor) who also visited in January 2014.

The video camera was again in action on Saturday, and they have put a comparison video together of the old three vs the new six:
