Appeal of Bells

Memory and Memorial 

Saturday 10th November 2018

Village Hall and the Church of St Martin, Martinstown, Dorset

Appeal of Bells - Memory and Memorial will be a celebratory event and an opportunity to remember the 33 Dorset bell ringers lost to conflict in WW1. During the afternoon there will be talks, readings and a hands on demonstration of bell ringing, taking place in Martinstown Village Hall, where refreshments will be available.

This will be followed in the early evening by a newly commissioned performance piece for voices and six bells performed in the Church of St Martin, Martinstown.

David Ward (visual artist), collaborating with Orlando Gough (composer), has been commissioned by the Dorset County Association of Bell Ringers to make a multifaceted artwork for Armistice Day Centenary Weekend 2018. Part of a citizen-led commissioning programme, New Patrons (Fr.).

The performance will highlight the significance of the Martinstown Church Bells, which were installed as the memorial to the five men of the village who lost their lives in WW2. The libretto, written by David Ward, and readings, make reference to the 4 men who lost their lives in WW1, remembered in the village by the dedication of ‘The Reading Room’ as their memorial. 

These events will ‘echo’ the community of Martinstown’s history of remembrance.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
