Handbells Paul brings his lovely set of restored handbells. Available each afternoon - outside under the Gazebo if weather is fine. Usually you start ringing 1 or 2 bells (though with experience - 4, 6 or 8.) Liked very much by all who have tried this guided teamwork.
Ringing using Paul's tunes is popular with children, seniors & all "between".
After just a little practise, their sound is particularly lovely ! Pic. C Lorraine 2008.
Cycling Most competently led along delightful country lanes around Great Alne by Janet S. PLEASE bring along your bike for Sunday afternoon. Note that you are responsible for your safety. And parents are responsible for safe conduct of their children at all times.
