HH Training Courses in 2020

flyers, training

We have recently undertaken a review of our course training needs and below is a brief description of what we have in mind during 2020. All the courses are free to club members (for non-members the cost is £10).

We hope that at least one of these sessions will interest you and that you will be able to join us.

If you need more information on any of the courses, or if you would like to put your name down for any course, please get in touch.

We’d love to see you there.
