The Handbells at Christmastide concert in St James Church, Stretham was a delightful candlelit concert of traditional and popular music and change-ringing performed on handbells and other instruments. The performers were the 1st Little Thetford Brigade, the recorder group of the University of the Third  Age, the Cottenham Handbell Ringers, the Bottisham Handbell Ensemble and local change ringers. The concert was organised in aid of the Ely Diocesan Association’s Recruitment & Training Fund, and about £400 was raised for the fund.
