Weather Watch

Sadly, it sometimes snows in winter!! If it does, call first to see if the session is still on. It will have to be bad for me not to run the session.

Settled in at The Priory

It was in November 2013 that we moved from Darrick Wood to the Priory. Still love the under floor heating. MMmmm

Last session for 2015 is on Sunday 13th December.
We return after the festive break on Sunday 10th January 2016, with a special self defense session.
