District BBQ - Saturday 12th August

The District Barbeque will be held on Saturday 12th August at the home of Phil and Liz Barnes, starting at 3pm and continuing until early evening. To cover the cost of the food please bring £5 per person on the day.  Home brew and other beer will be available but please bring your own soft drinks, wine etc.

We need an idea of numbers so we can make sure we have enough food, so please email Liz on lizzie@piltdown.org.uk by Monday 7th August if you plan to come. This is a great opportunity to socialise with other ringers in the District, have fun, play a few games and even do a little ringing in a low stress environment. 

Full details, including directions to the venue can be found here.
