by Joyce - August 2017

I have always wanted to attend a gardening course but was not able to find the time to take a day of work to attend and evening courses means having to rush to get there after work. I was so please when I came across the Centre of Excellence who were offering online courses which allowed me to do it in my own time . I have not yet started the course but I am so looking forward to start . It was also very easy to book and pay online as well. Staff support is also available
