The retiring webmaster, Graham Hounslow (Fawley), has been an invaluable member of the Guild Communications Committee for a number of years now. In addition to posting the C&S news, first on the District Website and later on the Guild Website, he wrote much of the original CSS programming that drives the “look and feel” of wpbells.org. The District and the Guild owe him grateful thanks!
This month’s Beyond Bob Doubles will be at East Tytherley on Wednesday 25th July. There will be five and six bell ringing for those that want it, but also triples and major, so anything from Grandsire Doubles up to Stedman Triples and Little Bob. All welcome from within the W+P and beyond.
The Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sports have now announced plans for the International Moment as the Nations says ‘Thank you’. Please see this Press Release that coincided with the announcement made on 12th July on the BBC’s The One Show.

DCMS is also supporting the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government on an initiative ‘Ringing Remembers’ which is run jointly by the Big Ideas Company and the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers. This project aims to get 1,400 people ringing church bells on the centenary of the Armistice, the number of bell ringers lost in the war.
Ringing Remembers: Bells ring out to mark the centenary of the Armistice
The UK Government invites all bell ringers to join the nation in marking the end of the First World War by ringing together on Remembrance Sunday. They would like ringing to take place at 12.30pm on Sunday 11 November to coincide with the nation’s tribute as thousands march past the Cenotaph. Everybody is invited to take part, whether you are a new Ringing Remembers recruit or an experienced ringer. All are welcome. If you haven’t done so already speak with your tower captain to start making plans for ringing during this national moment.
Share your plans with us and we’ll spread the word to inspire other ringers. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to the latest issue of Tower Talk, the magazine for ringers on the Learning the Ropes scheme.
This is a special edition for the run up to the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
11 November is always a poignant day for ringers, but this year it is particularly special because it is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice and, on top of that, ringers all around the country are being recruited in the ‘Ringing Remembers’ campaign to honour the 1400 ringers known to have been lost in the Great War. We have taken this opportunity to introduce you to some of our newest ringers who have got involved through Ringing Remembers. There is plenty to read in here, but it’s only a flavour of all the hard work which is going on everywhere to get ready to ‘ring for peace’.
Huge congratulations to Peter Murdock-Saint for not only ringing his first Quarter Peal on the Treble, but following up so swiftly with Tenor Behind, then Grandsire inside. (Click tower name for full details)
