Dear Editor

The Bells of St Wilfrid’s
The well researched and informative article, in the most recent issue of the Chronicle, on the bells of St Wilfrid’s, and the casting of bells in churchyards and the present day casting in foundries drew attention to church bells at a time when they are in the news. St Wilfrid’s bells and St Helen’s Saddington bells in the company of cathedrals, churches and chapels throughout the land, and Big Ben, were rung on Sunday 11 November, to commemorate the end of the first world war. This is in addition to the traditional ringing prior to 11am. Earlier in the year it was hoped to recruit 1,400 new or lapsed ringers (2 in Kibworth). The number 1,400 are the bellringers killed, or missing in action 1914 -1918. Kind regards.
