Handbell Set Seeks a Good Home

Over the years my father Cedric Curson collected various sorts of bells.

Among them is a set of eight handbells. These more or less make an octave but two are just a bit “off”.

As I have my own two octave set, I should like to donate my father’s bells to any group of NDA ringers who would like to have them.

If your group would like them, please get in touch.

First come, first served! If there is a tie, then lucky dip!
