Membership is by invitation of Simon Champion.

  • All Membership Fees are payable by Standing Order.
  • Sessions run for a guaranteed 45 weeks a year; they do not run to school terms as Members find this disruptive to their progress and enjoyment
    • in 2019 we ran 48 sessions and so any 'extra' weeks are a free bonus for Members.
    • At Christmas, sessions do not run for 2 weeks, as Members give priority to their family commitments at that time.
    • There may be odd weeks when halls are not available, due to redecoration or repairs.
    • There are occasions when Simon Champion is away on training courses - or even on holiday!
  • Maximum number at any session is limited to 15 students.
