Remembrance Day Ringing

On Remembrance Sunday church bells rang out all over Rutland, many of them half-muffled, to remember those who died or were injured in armed conflicts. Most services were in the morning, with silence at 11.00; the main County service was in Oakham at 2.30 pm, attended by the Lord-Lieutenant of the County, the High Sheriff, Sir Alan Duncan and many other civic dignitaries, together with an impressive display of military personnel.

Even more bells would have been rung if only Rutland had more bell ringers! Please follow this link if you think you might be interested in learning.
