Hi folks, there are just a few places left on the Autumn workshops now. You can book in confidence as I  have a policy of no cancellations. As soon as one place is booked the workshop is guaranteed to run, so book your place and pop it in your diary in complete confidence that it will happen.


Please visit the SHOP page to see the new Nature of Snowdonia II and eLearning modules. Updates will be on my Facebook blog - Notes from the Hill.

I hope you enjoy the free resources accessible from this page too, don't miss the drop down menu with links to podcasts and my YouTube channel.
