Bell ringers remember Pt Kenneth Dykes

Kenneth was killed in action during WW1 aged 19.  He was born in Nocton, son of George and Emma Dykes, and was one of the bell ringers at All Saints before he enlisted in the Lincolnshire Regiment.  To mark the centenary of his death the local ringers are planning to ring a half muffled quarter peal (45 mins) on Sunday 30 July and on Monday 31 July a half muffled full peal lasting approx 3 hours will be attempted.
