Remembrance Sunday 2023

Today we have rung our bells Half-muffled, whist the church congregation made their way from the Cenotaph in the centre of the village to the church to complete the remembrance service.

To muffle the bells we tie a piece of leather around one side of the clapper, so one of the two bell strikes is muffled giving an ideal somber sound to mark the occasion.

The Bell Ringers were:

Treble: Trevor Stacey
2nd Samuel Weaver
3rd: Karen Powell
4th: Mervyn Lock
5th: Trevor Lock
Tenor:  Jocelyne Lock

We have listed the performance on Bellboard here: 

Haughton Bell Ringers practice every Tuesday evening 8pm until 9pm (except for the 2nd Tuesday in the month, when the practice is moved to the Thursday of the same week) We welcome new ringers, and anyone who would like to visit us.
