VJ Day 75th Anniversary - Ringing for Peace
11.10 am Saturday 15th August 2020, St Mary's Church Bottesford
As part of a national event to mark the 75th Anniversary of VJ Day the tenor bell will be tolled 75 times at 11.10 am on Saturday 15th August 2020 by David Jones, the Tower Captain. This is the first time since the Covid 19 lockdown that any bell has been rung in Bottesford.
To preserve the bells in advance of the lockdown they were all brought down to a resting position. You may hear the bell being rung up to the upright position sometime in advance of the toll. No mean feat The tenor bell weighs 22 cwt.
Thank you David.
