May 2018 Newsletter

May is the month of celebrations!

It really is starting to feel warmer and you can feel the holiday atmosphere already!  So the arrival of the warmer weather is certainly something to celebrate! There is also the Royal Wedding on the 19th May. However,more importantly, we are going to be TWO on 12th May! We have two very special events to mark the occasion and we are aiming to raise £500 for the Whizzkidz charity! Check out our Lucky Duck Races below message below for more details.

Because of the Bank Holidays, Royal Weddings and own Charity Challenges, there are no  Taster or Beginner sessions this month.

We shall be having a break from Friday 25th May and back on Wednesday 30th May.
