Music in the woods

We had a visit from a lovely group a couple of weeks ago - watch the video



On some of our Green Woodwork courses there is a late booking half bursary available for students, low earners, etc so please ring and discuss with Tim and put yourself on the list - but please note that this does not include Elm seats if required. The idea is that if a course has a cancellation or empty place within a week of running Tim will give those on the list a ring to see if they wish to take advantage.
