This is the thirteenth year that we've been running workshops for the community, all you need to take with you is a positive attitude, comfortable clothing, a drinks bottle & towel plus something to eat during the breaks. Please note that the workshop takes people out of their comfort zone & can be both physically & mentally demanding at times, if unsure seek your doctor's advice before undertaking any form of physical training or have a word with the instructor.
