Richmond Retirement Village


Our first outing in 2019 was to this care home in Nantwich where we played a variety of pieces for the residents.  It is in a beautiful setting and they enjoyed it so much they have already asked us back later in the year!

We were busy in the run up to Christmas with visits to care homes and the Lion Salt Works for their Victorian weekend.  We were glad that the visit to the Salt Works was in better weather than last year so more people were around.

Lion Salt Works, Marston, Northwich


Two of the care homes visited were

Winsford Grange



and The Willows at Mobberley

In the Spring we were invited to take part in the BBC campaign Get Creative by Middlewich Library so here are some photos taken then.The youngsters really enjoyed playing with us.



We were then invited back to the Library in August where we had a young lady who really enjoyed it and even came to join us at a couple of practices afterwards.


In March we were invited to Davenham Mothers' Union with our talk "Making Music with Handbells" and as you can see from the photograph members enjoyed joining in!



We rang on Saturday, 13th October, at the Autumn Rally hosted by Sale Handbell Ringers.  Ten teams were present - the hall was full.

All the pieces played were different and very varied; classical, jazz, waltzes and pop - even a piece of music from Singapore.  The massed ringing pieces were Trumpet Chorale, Come to the Fair and Hallelujah Chorus; all conducted well by three different people - well done to all of them.

The Hallelujah Chorus was recorded and sent by phone to India - LIVE - sounded really good and we all finished together!

A brilliant day, wonderful ringing and a big thank you to Sale who did an excellent job as hosts.
