Ring­ing for peace

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

The bell of a Dum­fries church will ring on Sun­day evening, join­ing thou­sands of oth­ers across the UK as part of a tribute re­mem­ber­ing the end of World War One.

St Michael’s Church will mark the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of the Great War by “ring­ing for peace ”shortly af­ter 7pm.

The church is taking part in the Bat­tle’s Over pro­gramme of remembrance or­gan­ised by Great Yar­mouth based pageant­mas­ter Bruno Peek.

Richard Reade, from the Dum­fries kirk, said: “We are taking part and this will be in ad­di­tion to us hold­ing our orig­i­nal ser­vice on the day, and we’ll also be hold­ing a spe­cial ser­vice for remembrance at 6pm.

“Bruno got in touch and we liked the idea be­cause the bell-ring­ing sig­ni­fies some­thing spe­cial and is a real cel­e­bra­tion of peace for thou­sands of churches in the coun­try.”
