    1. Hi Chantal, apologies for the late reply, we had some website technical ‘challenges’ all fixed now!

      I am hoping to get up there in the next few months actually – keep following us on FB and subscribe to our newsletter (we don’t bombard you) for updates.

      Can you let me know specifically what you want to do – we may have one of our trainers up that way soon.
