Humberside Show

The presence of the Society for several years (1978-1980) at the Humberside show took extensive planning and fund raising. A model tower was constructed with a set of handbells in a frame with scale fittings. Display boards surrounded the tent and handbell ringing was well received. The highlight for some people was a visit by Princess Anne. A rota was organised to sleep overnight in the tent as valuable equipment was stored there.
