  • Chesterfield District Training Day

    28th July 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

    Training day for beginners/improvers. As a minimum you need to be able to ring rounds and call changes competently. Tuition (with a team of experienced helpers) will be based on what you can already ring, and what you would like to progress to. Choose from:

    • Advanced call changes
    • Plain hunting
    • Plain Bob (doubles or minor, with or without bobs)

    We will be ringing at three different towers in the South of the Chesterfield District. If you don't have transport between the towers let us know as it should be possible to arrange a lift .

    Bring a picnic lunch. Tea/coffee and biscuits will be provided.

    Cost £10 (Adult), £5 (18 or under). Contact training@derbyda.org.uk for more information.

    Download and print a poster for your tower.
