To book a place on one of the above courses, please contact Sue Bigg at Limited places are available on each course. There is no charge for the course. Casual clothing, uniform not required. You will need to bring a packed lunch (drinks are available) and a pad & pen. If for some reason you have booked a place and you cannot make it or want to reschedule,PLEASE, PLEASE let Sue know so the place can then be offered to someone else. There have been quite a few no shows in the past and this is not fair on leaders wanting to go on courses or to the St John’s leaders, who are volunteers also.
