Villagers are hoping they can recruit lots of bell ringers this year to commemorate a century since end of World War One.

Around 1,400 bell ringers lost their lives during the Great War so to mark 100 years since the conflict ended, the village is taking part in a national campaign to recruit and train the same number by Armistice Day.

Volunteers will then take part in a bell ringing ceremony on the day, November 11, to remember those who lost their lives in the war.

Anyone taking part must be aged 10 or over.

Churches across the country are hosting similar events with the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers co-ordinating a campaign to get as many people as possible involved.

Uphill is one of the other churches which will host a similar event to mark Armistice Day.

To get involved, contact Margaret Bailey on or 01934 815308.
