HANDBELL RINGERS

During Christmas the Kempsford handbell ringers visited the residences of the principal inhabitants and rang a selection of hymns, carols and courses of Grandsire Triples, under the leadership of Mr L. Couling.

My particular thanks to Dr. C J Bearman who researched a number of Gloucestershire singers as part of the Singing Landscape Project, 2008 - 2010 with whose kind permission this note is reproduced.
