    I Sent you a message about the 4 week course on Sundays, asking for the price. I found it on Facebook, I’m also interested in the course too, but I can’t find the price!
    How much is this one and is their a special price if you book both! I will be travelling from Brighton so have to take in to consideration the travel cost

    Thank you x
