Armistice Centenary

Every ringable Tower in the Bicester Branch bells rang their bells to commemorate the Centenary of the World War One Armistice on 11th November, which is wonderful.

Some key highlights include the new band at Weston on the Green ringing Out for Peace from 3pm on Sunday, while towers like Ambrosden  currently without a band, had their bells rung by branch members.
