Boxley Hand Bells
We had a great evening in January 2013,
Sylvia Coomber the leader of Boxley Handbells came with 11 ringers
and their dog Toby , who behaved impeccably
Some ringers even had to play 3 bells. They played a good selection of tunes which were all recognisable and some we even sung along with.
Finally after tuition and a tutor at our sides
it was over to us!
Adriana and Jean soon got into the swing of it - in this picture the bells are at rest - note the gloves.
Here Margaret and Val's bells are 'ringing' as they are flicked down with the wrist, somehow Margaret was expected to use two - Maybe because she kept asking questions all through the demonstration.
They play at Boxley Church it would be worth going to hear them
