Communications and Events Team update (April 2019)
- Published: Monday, 08 April 2019 09:26
Welcome to all our new members who joined the Sussex County Association as a result of the Ringing Remembers campaign, sponsored by the Government in collaboration with the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers to recruit new ringers to honour those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the liberties we enjoy today. Welcome to a big friendly family of bellringers around the UK and the world, but for now, while you’re learning this special art, here in Sussex. Bellringing is an important part of church life, and by honouring those who went before us we are keeping the tradition and our communities alive. We’re keeping our minds and bodies healthy too, making new friends and learning to value the importance of volunteering. Weekly practice and ringing for Sunday service is a much-valued contribution, thank you. If you have other skills you can offer, belfry maintenance, social media, organising events, photographer, fundraising, upholstery, baking, tidying the ringing room, you name it we’ll use it – let us know! Our Association is what we make it.
