Bellringers required for 10th May 2015 for the next Coxwold Cyclists Church Service. Beautiful church with 3 bells.
This is a nationally supported event run by CTC Teesside. This year it featured as a fringe event in the Yorkshire Festival ahead of Le Tour de France in Yorkshire. Click the link below to see the advert on the Yorkshire Festival site.
On Sunday May 11th, over 300 pedal cyclists from across Yorkshire and Teeside, converged on the village of Coxwold, east of Thirsk, for their 88th annual Service of Remembrance at St. Michaels Church, beginning at 1.30 pm.
The small 14th century church was filled with a sea of multicoloured jerseys. Cyclists acted as bell ringers, sidesmen, offertory collectors, lesson readers, choristers and organist. Local residents and visitors to the area were welcomed to come and join the group.
The service was led by the Rector, the Rev. Liz Hassall. The guest preacher was the Rt. Rev. Glyn Webster, Bishop of Beverley.
Organised rides to the service were arranged by local CTC members, from Hull, York, Leeds, Malton and Teesside.
Refreshments were on sale in Coxwold village hall from 11 am, and after the Service.
