Rung to mark the 75th anniversary, celebrating and giving thanks, for the official end of the Second World War - this day in 1945. Also remembering all those who lost their lives during WWII, the prisoners of war and all those who answered the call to fight for King & Country - bringing us Victory, Peace and Freedom.
Rung by some of the local band on the front three bells. Remembering the eight men from this parish who were killed during WWII - Robert Eustace Abel-Smith in 1940, Edward Shackley in 1940, Ernest Moulding in 1941, William George Cooper in 1943, Harry Horner in 1943, John ‘Joey’ Joseph Smith in 1944, Bernard Simpson Plumtree in 1944, and Reginald Denton in 1944.
Also remembering Ron Applewhite, former local ringer who sadly passed away aged 100 at the end of May this year. Ron was fighting out in Burma on VE Day 1945.
Today’s ringing took place as we were unable to ring the bells for VE Day due to the national lockdown and also unable to ring the bells for the recent VJ Day as ringing had not recommenced here at that time, hence we made the effort to ring today.
The ringing took place with social distancing observed and all the ringers wearing face coverings.

This performance is linked to the event VJ Day - 75th Anniversary .

This performance was rung in memoriam In memoriam — Ron Applewhite .
