NORTH WEST SPRING RALLY
BURY GRAMMAR SCHOOL, BRIDGE ROAD, BURY, GREATER MANCHESTER, BL9 0HG
All teams and individual members are warmly invited to our Spring Rally, which will follow the usual pattern of massed ringing and individual team ringing. If you can’t come as a full team, don’t miss the fun, come anyway - we’d love to see you! If your team has never played a solo item at a Rally before, you can choose to just join in the massed ringing, but remember that if you do decide to take the plunge, you couldn’t be playing to a more sympathetic audience – every one of us has been there!
