Bell Choir Director

As a teenager, Hazel was an active member of the various youth groups at St. Andrew's - CGIT, Hi-C and Young People. Later, she and her husband were married at St. Andrew's. They returned in 2001 and immediately felt the warmth and friendliness of the church. Hazel is a retired music educator. She joined the hand bell choir in 2005 and became its director in 2007. As well as participating in the worship services with the bells, Hazel also plays piano and various other instruments.
