Dear All, following the announcement by the palace that HRH Prince Philip has died there are clearly a number of questions about how ringers should mark this moment whilst staying within the restrictions of the pandemic.
Whilst we await guidance from the Central Council you might consider if Tolling of the Tenor would be possible today. For safety reasons there should never be a ringer ringing alone, but if two members of a family/bubble were to be available then this would meet safety guidelines, be within covid restrictions and be appropriate on such a day of national significance. I would encourage you to seek approval of this plan from the incumbent of your particular church.
I will circulate more information on guideline and restrictions as they become available.
