These special badges are for Ringing Remembers recruits to recognise their participation as learners in the Ringing Remembers campaign. To get your badge, you need to have registered as a Ringing Remembers recruit and updated your profile by 11 October.
If you are a new ringer, and have not done so already, please make sure you register yourself on the Ringing Remembers sign up database. If you have already registered, please make sure you have updated your account so that you’re registered as learning to ring. Please help us by asking other new recruits to register and update their profile, particularly if you know they are not able to read this message.
You need to register/update your profile by 11 October if you want to wear your badge on Armistice Day! Ringing Remembers badges Q&A
The Ringing Remembers campaign has sought to recruit new bell ringers to commemorate the 1,400 who died in WW1. Ringing Remembers recruits will ring on Armistice Day alongside existing ringers across Sussex, around the UK and worldwide.
"This project gives us the opportunity to raise the profile of ringing and develop a relationship with community networks to provide new bell ringers. Ringing Remembers is a poignant and significant programme which appropriately acknowledges the sacrifices made by so many, aspiring to a living legacy for ringing."
Alan Regin MBE
