Viv P.R,O would like to share this letter of encouragement from Archdeacons of the Winchester Diocese:
Writing this email on Ascension Day when I enjoyed the early morning reminder of the festival from the cathedral bells seems a good day on which to correspond on this subject!
On behalf of Archdeacon Peter and myself, thank you for keeping us updated on the excellent work of the Guild and in particular relating to your activities this centenary year of the end of WW1. Peals to commemorate the event across the county are a particularly fitting as well as unique way of honouring the past and calling us to a different future.
We wish you every success in encouraging those parishes with a ring of bells to join in these commemorations and we thank the Guild for its ministry and work.
With all good wishes,
The Ven Richard Brand
Archdeacon of Winchester
