Greystoke Hand Bell Ringers

The Greystoke Hand Bell Ringers meet in the village hall most Thursdays from 1-30 to 3-30pm to practice ringing the bells. We currently have approximately 10 members who ring 3 octaves of bells with guidance from our Musical Director Maureen Hardy. We give concerts to a variety of groups of people and attend occasional rallies in the Northwest, where we play music we have practised, take part in massed ringing, hear and meet other groups as well as learning new techniques. The run up to Christmas is always a busy time, practising carols and festive music, and performing at the Carol Service as well as for various groups.

Practice includes a tea break, and there may also be cake, biscuits and other baked goods to consume! We welcome people who are interested in learning to play – musical experience is not required. If there is sufficient interest, a beginners group may be arranged at a different time.

Additional Information: Please contact our secretary, Ann, for further details, or to discuss a booking to play.

Whisky Club

Greystoke Whisky Club

The club meets on the first Tuesday of the month in the Boot and Shoe snug bar at 6.30pm.  Newcomers welcome. You will have the chance to sample a variety of single malt whiskies for the relatively modest sum of £10 per attendance (funds used to acquire future samples!)  Scores and comments are made on each, with a winner declared on the night – all in a light hearted, sociable and lively environment. The club has occasional outings and guest speakers.

Contact: Harry Upton

Additional Information: There is a monthly newsletter which tries to record the events of the evening.

Address: Boot and Shoe, Greystoke

Old whisky club newsletters are available to browse in PDF format below (from the December 2018 meeting)

Open The Book

An ecumenical team of folk from the churches and communities of Greystoke and Penruddock have been presenting bible story based assemblies at both our Primary schools since 2012. We use the material from www.openthebook.net to present bible stories using storytelling and mime with simple props. Each presentation, including a song or two, takes about 20 minutes. The material satisfies OFSTED requirements, the schools are delighted and the children can’t wait to volunteer to help. We have a lot of fun doing this, and would be delighted to have more people join our Team. Contact telephone number Greystoke Rectory: 017684 80661.
