Haughton Village News
My art classes are returning to Haughton Village Hall next month. I run three weekly groups there which cover a range of drawing and painting techniques for people of all abilities, including complete beginners.
The monthly meeting are currently continuing online, for more details of this Saturday's meeting (1st May 2021) click the link below:
We are pleased to announce we will be reopening indoors and outdoors on Tuesday 18th May at midday.
It had been decided that bells should be tolled over the country for an hour before HRH Prince Philip's funeral, still having Covid-19 restrictions in place and only being able to toll a single bell at a time, to help prevent the spread of the virus, our performance options were very limited.
As a team and to enable us all to have a turn to ring, we decided to ring our individual bells 99 times representing the age of the Duke. The bells had been half-muffled before hand. We started with the treble and went around the tower in order to finish with the tenor. While each performance was taking place the others were socially distancing in the churchyard, and yes the sun was shining!
A piece of each performance can be viewed below:
Trevor Lock rang 99 strokes of the tenor half-muffled to mark the passing of HRH Prince Philip who sadly died yesterday 9th April 2021 aged 99
