You can put Sussex on the map by adding your Armistice ringing to the government website (no need to register) and if you'd like a certificate and a mention in the Ringing World add it to the Bellboard event, photos encouraged!
Please add all your planned ringing (of ANY kind - rounds, call changes, touches, QPs etc) NOW, before 11 November. There will be an upsurge in interest from local and national media in the run-up to 11 November; it's likely journalists will be looking at the map to see where there will be ringing, and may well wish to feature your band (if they know you're ringing!)...
Where to record your Armistice Day ringing
There are two places to record your ringing:
- The Ringing World, the weekly journal for #bellringing, has a special Bellboard event for recording Armistice Day ringing of all types. These ringing events will also be included in subsequent editions of the printed journal, and photographs of Armistice Day ringing from across the country are sought to accompany this. Ringers will later be able to draw down special commemorative certificates from these records. [N.B. This requires a BellBoard account.

- The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is asking ringers to record their ringing events on the government's #Armistice100 website Armistice100 website This links to many other #WW1 centenary events happening across the country and allows the public to search for nearby commemoration events.
