Methods rang spell out the word ROCKING. The Rocking service at Blidworth celebrates its centenary this weekend following the reintroduction of the service in 1922.
This unique service recognises Jesus being presented to the temple in Jerusalem. The rocking baby is the baby boy born nearest to Christmas day born in the village of Blidworth and baptised before the ceremony takes place.
500th peal-3.
