    • 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.
