11 April 2020 • Get Into Gardening!

Get into Gardening was really interesting. I learn a great deal on how to create a garden that would thrive. I feel confident to plan a gardrn now. Great teacher


26 March 2020 • That Was Then, This is Now

The Journal Writing course was terrific. Heather, our teacher had many years of experience and a veritable cornucopia of creative ideas to stimulate our imagination. As she said in the course, you get out of it what you put in and I found having a weekly deadline for homework helped me apply myself to the task. The learnings from the course are particularly relevant to the current climate of "social distancing" due to the Covid 19 virus. While we are all somewhat house bound it's a great opportunity to apply the grey matter and get writing.


26 March 2020 • Belly Dancing - Intermediate

Although I had to miss several classes through illness, (no, not that one!) I found Anita's classes very valuable, revisiting belly dancing skills I learnt in the past. Looking forward to her next classes .... Jaz Stutley.
