Bellfolk Open Evening

Bellfolk Handbell Ringers are hosting an open evening on Thursday 7th December at 7.30 p.m in Honingham Village Hall. It’s their usual practice night and they will be playing mostly music for Christmas along with a few other concert pieces. They will be using all their bells, not just the 12 that they use when they play outside.  It’s a very informal evening, there’s no charge to attend, and coffee, tea and mince pies will be available. There may also be a chance for people to “have-a-go”.  Everyone is welcome so please pop along and see what they get up to.

Mrs.Betty Hodgson’s funeral at St.Andrews Church Honingham on Monday July 10th at 2pm.

After Mrs.Betty Hodgson moved to Church Farm House she soon became involved in village life. She was a valued member of the church often doing the flower arrangements. As President of Honingham Womens Institute, and a member of the darts team, she invited members to her house where they spent many happy afternoons playing tennis and having cups of tea and cake. Many parisheners have fond memories of their children having lots of fun in the swimming pool on the games afternoons. We also enjoyed walking round the garden and viewing the snowdrops. Table Tennis was another of her interests and she was a very good player. She will be remembered with affection by the people of Honingham.
