REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 11 NOVEMBER 2018
On Sunday 11 November 2018, Church Bells throughout the country will ring out to commemorate the signing of the Armistice 100 years ago, to give thanks to those who lost their lives and to show our appreciation to those who returned home after four years of conflict.
The local bells will be rung in and around Huish Episcopi but because ringers have to be shared to make up numbers, they will be unable to all ring at 12.30pm.
This will be an occasion when the country remembers the sacrifice made by so many and will be a fitting conclusion to the four years of commemorations to mark the centenary of the First World War.
|ALLER||4.00pm. At the Going Down of the Sun, we will Remember them and Celebrate the Peace.|
|HIGH HAM||12noon at the end of the Remembrance Day Service|
|HUISH EPISCOPI||The bells will be rung half muffled until 10.55am, just before the start of the Remembrance Day ceremony at the War Memorial.|
At the conclusion of the Church Remembrance Day Service at approximately 12.30pm, the bells will be rung “Open” (without the muffles), in commemoration, as the congregation leaves the church.
|ALL SAINTS CHURCH, LANGPORT||On completion of the ringing at St Mary’s Church, the bell ringers will ring for 20 minutes at All Saints.|
|PITNEY||Ringing will take place from 2.15pm to 2.45pm. Four ringers from Huish Episcopi will augment the two ringers from Pitney.|
