The flag has been set at half mast this evening and will be raised to full mast at 11am on King Charles III Proclamation day (Saturday 10th November).  It be return to half mast the day after until the day of the Queen's funeral.

Our bells will be rung 'open' on the Proclamation day at 11am (Saturday 10th), afterwards the muffles will be put back and the bells will be 'half muffled' during our normal ringing times until the Queen's funeral.
