Does anyone know of any classes or lessons locally. Either for fitness or for skill learning. I'd like to have some tuition in both areas as I'm only a beginner. Thoughts welcome. Thanks.
Thanks guys, keep your ears open, & I'll be in touch if I find anything. Until then the living room it is. Cheers Kate
