Illogan Handbell Ringers
ILLOGAN HANDBELL RINGERS
Old bells, new ringers
Late in 2013, thanks to Joyce’s encouragement, aided by Sylvia Mason, a new group tentatively took up the bells once more and ‘ILLOGAN HANDBELL RINGERS’ was formed in 2014. Currently, we meet on Wednesdays at 2.15 – 4:15pm in the Parish Room of St. Illogan Church (3rd Weds. excepted when we meet at St. Mary’s Hall, Portreath). First hour: more challenging pieces of music; second hour tailored for newer members.
‘We play a variety of music ranging from folk songs (Cornish as well as ‘up country’) to hymns and carols, and from music hall favourites to themes from the classics arranged for bells. Our aims, as a group, are threefold: to have fun learning to play; to enjoy making music; and to share our joy in music-making with others.
