Great War and the sacrifice of a generation 100 years ago, the charity
Remembrance aims to bring their names down from local War Memorials
and back into the consciousness of the communities they served with
nationwide installations of silhouettes to commemorate the fallen
wherever they are listed. The WG Local History Group has researched
local choir members and bellringers at St.George's who went to the Front
(four of whom died as a result), whose stories will be told again in their
We are hoping to gather support and contributions to raise funds for a
Remembrance installation at St. George's and ask that you visit the
website 'Therebutnotthere.org.uk' to have a look. Please contact
Susie Jacobsen 01403 711763 if you would like to be involved.
Every contribution, however small will help.
There were 1400 bellringers lost to the nation in the First World War
and the Central Council for Church Bell Ringers has begun a 'Ringing
For Peace Armistice 100' appeal to recruit bands of future bellringers
in their memory. St.George's bells will be ringing during the Countryside
Festival weekend and there will be a 'SCACR' exhibition with a mini ring
for visitors to whet your interest and have a go.
