Bell ringers at King’s Lynn Minster will sound a muffled peal on Sunday to mark a service ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day

The team will ring before the noon service which is being held at King’s Lynn Town Hall.

West Norfolk Mayor Barry Ayres will be giving a reading at the multi-faith service on Sunday, ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day on Tuesday.

Members of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian communities will all be taking part.

Pupils from St Martha’s School, Gaywood, will sing at the service, which is led by Canon Christopher Ivory, of Lynn Minster.

Representatives of the Soroptimists, King’s Lynn Area Resettlement Support (KLARS) and council leader Nick Daubney will also be taking part.

“In marking the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkeneau in this way, our community is showing that we stand united in  condemnation of intolerance and discrimination.

“Together we will remember the victims of the Holocaust and more recent genocides, and celebrate the strength of those who resist persecution,” said Mr Ayres.

The service will start at noon and everyone is welcome to attend.

There will be a short wreath-laying ceremony in the Tower Gardens immediately after the service, followed by refreshments at The Minster.
