Socials & Survey Trips

For details of the previous survey trips please read the various posts on our blog.

As explained in recent monthly Social Survey reports, we have had difficulty booking transport for the beer survey trips on Saturday nights so have changed the nights to Friday for 2017.  

As usual, there is a free minibus from Ripley Market Place at 7:30pm and other pickups are available on request.  This may change slightly depending on which area we are surveying.  Places are limited and it will be run on a "first come, first served" basis so please get in touch with Jane Wallis, contact details below, as soon as possible if you would like to reserve a place.  All CAMRA members are welcome but Amber Valley members take priority over members from other branches.
