Christmas is ringing out at Brooklyn House

Residents, relatives and colleagues enjoyed a festive musical treat this week at Brooklyn House in Attleborough.

This week the Hingham Star Bell Ringers, rang out the start of the homes programme of entertainment over the Christmas period.

Campanology is the traditional art of bell ringing, where a group of people come together with a collection of tuned bells to play conventional melodic music. Paulina from the Hingham Star Bell Ringers added, “It’s changed over the years, we found some old photos and the group were all men. Now we are all Ladies! We found the bells up in the bell tower a few years ago and thought we would reform”.

Resident Ruth had a special interest in the bell ringers as her father used to ring and was once the church warden in Attleborough, so this brought back many fond memories for her.

All the residents, relatives and care team that attended the bell ringing were enthralled by the ringing, and just how they managed to play in time.

The Star Ringers enjoyed playing and wish to return in the very near future.

Brooklyn House provides specialist nursing care in a purpose built environment for up to 38 elderly people.
