About HRGB

Handbell Ringers of Great Britain (HRGB)

HRGB is an organisation dedicated to promoting the ringing of music on handbells; it was was formed in 1967. We are a member of Making Music, the National Federation of Music Societies and of the International Handbell Committee.

HRGB comprises eight Regions, each with a managing Committee with a degree of autonomy (so some variation in activities can be expected).

HRGB is a Registered Charity and all the NEC members are Trustees of the Charity. The Society's Rules are available here and regulations under rule 53 relating to voting on motions at a General Meeting are here.

Each Region has a committee elected annually at their AGM with a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.  The Regional AGM also elects two Regional Representatives to sit on the National Executive Committee (NEC) together with the National Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Membership Secretary - the four Officers of the Society who are elected at a National AGM.

Together,the Officers and Regional Representives comprise the Trustees of the Society see diagram below..
