Bells will ring out to commemorate loss then peace

Ringing Remembers is the name of the campaign by bell ringers throughout Britain to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. 

In Llangollen, as elsewhere, the bells will be rung half-muffled before the Act of Remembrance at the Cenotaph on Sunday, in memory of all those who lost their lives as a result of the war. 

Then at 12.30 the bells will ring out without the muffles to celebrate the peace. 

On the 11th November 1918 bells were rung spontaneously throughout the country as part of a huge outpouring of relief that took place as news of the Armistice spread.
