C&S District Surprise Major Practice Report August 2016

17 ringers met this evening and rang London, Superlative, Cambridge, Yorkshire, Bristol and a smattering of Spliced.

Some of the usual people were missing but numbers remained strong as we were joined by holidaymakers.

Four Guilds were represented – Salisbury and W&P as usual, plus Guildford and Chester.
