‘There has been a team of handbell ringers in Honingham for over 40 years! ... The team plays a wide range of music on a 3 ½ set of traditional English handbells, which were manufactured over a century ago. We also ring around 3 octaves of handchimes too! ... The music played is varied and includes classics, tunes from shows and light popular favourites, thus providing entertainment for all. Many team members have gained experience from working with internationally recognised conductors throughout the UK and overseas, developing a range of interesting techniques to enhance the sound of bells. At local music festivals, the team has achieved outstanding results and been complimented on their musicality.‘

‘We meet regularly to practise handbell tune ringing and we enjoy entertaining people. So far we have rung at nursing homes, walking clubs, club and society dinners, fetes and weddings. Three times a year we join other handbell teams to ring at rallies organised by either the national or local branch of the handbell ringer's association ... New members are always welcome. Reading music is not essential but a sense of rhythm, fun and a good sense of humour always helps!’

It is the only national organisation supporting handbell, handchime and Belleplate players ... The Society is organised into 8 regions giving access to a nationwide network of handbell ringers from all walks of life and of varying abilities. Each region holds rallies where teams have the chance to ring individually or to combine to ring the same piece of music in “massed” ringing.’
