A FESTIVE concert in a Worcester church proved to be a real winter warmer.

Six members of the Hallow Handbell Ringers performed a number of carols and Christmas songs such as Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Jingle Bells at the monthly coffee concert at St Martin’s Church, London Road.

Group co-ordinator, Jenny Beacham, said: “It went very well and it was a very good morning.”

The ringers were formed in 1997 and use the bells of Hallow Tower Bell Ringers.

The next coffee concert takes place on Saturday, January 26 with Shulah Oliver performing on violin and Simon Marlow on piano from 10.30-11.30am.
