Bells - Advent Scavenger Hunt Day 10

Yesterday is the start of Christmas here in our village - a craft fair in the Primary School, the nativity pageant, Santa's arrival and then the turning on of the lights.

The local handbell ringers were doing their bit to add to the atmosphere at the craft fair

The higher bells are played by young children, so I've kept them out of the picture, but all the teams are new to this and it's great to hear the lovely gentle tinkle. I tried doing a video of them but there was so much noise in the hall it was hard to hear them properly.  

I'm joining in this month with  Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt - a post a day (more or less) leading up to Christmas.
You can check in here for the details of the prompts and the list of who else is playing and to join in yourself if you fancy playing along.


  1. I love to see the campanologists playing. They somehow make Christmas with the tinkling of the bells

  2. I love the sound of handbells & how wonderful to live in a village full of celebrations like that.

  3. A few years ago, at a chrimbly lights switch on, we listened to bell ringers and it was lovely hearing the pealing sounds as they played. There is something so intrinsic with this time of year and bells :)

  4. The bells make such a lovely noise and even if they go wrong the sound is so forgiving. We saw a local team in the town library on Saturday.


Do drop me a line ... I love to read your comments :)
