The Heart of England Handbell Society
The society was formed in October 2006 at a rally in Harvington, Worcestershire, by a group of teams from across the central England area. The society is aimed at all teams large or small, in particular those teams who may not get the opportunity to perform if front of an audience on a regular basis.
The society provides opportunities for handbell ringers across the Midlands area to ring together, socialise, support each other, enjoy each others concerts and to attend the events staged by the society.
The main aims of the society are:-
**To promote handbell ringing across the central England area.
**To support handbell teams across the area.
**To stage local rallies with the focus on individual team performance.
**To stage local concerts and to support teams to stage their own concerts.
**To produce two newsletters each year to promote and support the activities of every team in the society.
**To operate a society which reflects the needs of its membership.
