At Christmas, the Pilton Handbell Ringing Group played at five different venues. At Torrwood Care Home in Wells, one of the residents was rather disappointed that we were Bellringers not Belly Dancers having misheard who was visiting! We also played at the Cyder Barn, West Pennard, for the Village Carol Service, at Homechime House in Wells and finally at The Crown.
We raised money at the last two venues for this year’s charity chosen by Hilary: The Bristol Methodist Centre, which does such admirable work for the homeless. This amounted to £200 after a generous donation for which we are all most grateful. Thanks to all who supported us.Now the handbells are being sent off for maintenance thanks to the grant we were awarded recently by the Grants Committee of Pilton Show. Thank you so much for helping us to keep the set in good condition for the future.
