Real time sessions take place on Wednesday evenings (5.30 pm), Monday mornings (9.30 am) and on Sundays (2.00 pm). We will train face to face outdoors when the weather is reasonable but if the weather is against us, we will go into the indoor hall unless government restrictions do not permit indoor training, in which case, the session will be held at the usual time via Zoom.
Buldge classes will be added as demand dictates.
