Information Regarding Operations During The Covid-19 pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have made the decision to suspend our activities.

Based on the current government guidance it is not likely that we will be able to offer group events until July at the earliest. We will continue to review our position based on Government guidance as and when it is updated.   An email has been sent to everyone  who has booked a course/event up to the end of June 2020.

Please feel free to continue to browse the site, view our upcoming courses/events and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
