Tabor Handbells Report: April 2018


Tabor Ringers, based at Tabor Independent Methodist Church Timsbury. have begun a new year of engagements.

The first engagement this year was a sad occasion, when the group played at the funeral of a former founder and playing member.  Eric Brimble resigned from the group in January 2017 due to illness.  Both Eric and his wife, Freda, were founder members and Freda was secretary for many years.  Freda decided to retire at the same time as Eric and they were presented with an engraved crystal glass bell and a framed photograph of the group.

The week following Eric’s funeral the group had a return trip to The Good Companions club based at St Philips and St James Church in Bath.

The Concert planned at Pine Lea Midsomer Norton had to be cancelled because of adverse weather conditions.  A couple of the ringers were snowed in, in their village and another one was stuck in Minehead.  It is hoped a later date can be arranged.

The group are taking the advantage of a gap, for a few weeks, in engagements to learn new music, which we are planning to roll out for our Spring/Summer Season.

The diary is beginning to fill for the rest of the year and especially during December, our busiest season.

Further information, either about how to join the group or for bookings please contact our Secretary Mrs Ruth Bailey (01761) 752049
