Well the ringing is over for another Christmas period. It came and went so quickly in the end, but we were pleased to play at a variety of new venues this year.
We paid two visits to the Royal Oak in Ockbrook, firstly for the switch-on of the Christmas Lights, and secondly to entertain the senior citizens of Bramblebrook Link at their Christmas Lunch.
Treetops Hospice welcomed us to play along at their lively Christmas Shopping Event.
We visited Briar Close Residential home locally and Ashfields in Heanor. at each encountering choirs of which Gareth Malone would have been proud.
And lastly, we were thrilled to be part of the Christingle Service at Ockbrook Moravian Church on Christmas Eve. Seeing the children with their candles in the darkened church and singing the Moravian carol seemed to be both truly magical and deeply spiritual and we hope that we enhanced the service in a modest way.
We will start 2016 by having lunch together, probably looking back over the Christmas period, but also making plans for our new programme.
