I was extremely disappointed that this class was cancelled less than a week before it was scheduled to take place. I had bought the class for my husband for an important birthday, approximately three months prior, and had had no indication that the class might not run in the lead up, until 3 days prior, and that was via text message. There was no courtesy phone call, no follow-up, and no offer of a similar course at another date. I am extremely disappointed and will not be recommending this service to others at this stage.
