We cater for different levels of skill and ability and put similar people together so the journey is as pleasant as we can make it. There is no rushing for achievements but a common understanding that we will start together in each class with a firm hello and end with the hope of seeing each other next week.
Good health to our friends and a sense of harmony. So come and join us!
