Courses – Residential Courses, New category

I get various good ideas from the “30 Second Survey” which is shown at the top of the home page. Over time i try and incorporate the best of these in the website, subject to cost and resource, as ever. Recently I was asked to add a category to courses for “Residential Courses”.

This has been done and while there are not many courses shown at present, there are a few РUK and elsewhere, that may be of interest.  We always welcome more course listings, but unless submitted by a Selected Member, there is a small charge. Current  Residential Courses shown are:
