Ringing for The Platinum Jubilee

Have you planned any ringing at your tower for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee?

We are intending to write to Buckingham Palace to let Her Majesty know about celebratory ringing taking place by members of the St Martin’s Guild over the 4-day Bank Holiday weekend.

Things to ring for:

Thursday 2 June, 9.45 pm – Beacon lighting. The Lord Mayor will be lighting a beacon, one of a chain spanning the Commonwealth, in Birmingham.

Friday 3 June, 11.30 – Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.

Of course, you can ring at any other time during the celebratory weekend, and we’re sure you will.

A Bellboard link has been set up for bands to record their performances and you can download a certificate recording your ringing which you can display in your tower. You can find the cccbr advice, with those links here https://cccbr.org.uk/2022/05/08/hm-queens-jubilee-2/

We have deliberately not planned any Guild events as we feel that this is something that people will want to do in their own local areas with their local bands. However, if you need some extra ringers for your event, please let the officers know and, although we can’t promise whole bands, we can certainly send out requests via the group email list.

Don’t forget to let us know what you are planning!
