Cefn School bell to ring out on the centenary of the end of World War One: At 12.30pm on Sunday, November 11, the centenary of the end of World War One, the bell of Cefn School will be tolled, together in unison with thousands in villages, towns and cities across the land.
This will be in remembrance of the end of the first World War and the 1,400 bell ringers who lost their lives during it. Church bells across the UK remained restricted throughout the course of the war and only rang freely once Armistice was declared on 11 November 1918.
The ringing of church bells erupted spontaneously across the country, as an outpouring of relief that 4 years of war had come to an end. looking forward to next year’s party which will be bigger and better, if at all possible.

A number of new members have joined the club since the Annual Show on September 1 and these new members are cordially invited to come along and meet existing and other new members in an informal, light hearted setting.
