Blooming heck ! Bit of a drive then :lol:

Will they be helping you out with the B&B or do you need to fund it yourself ?

That is a shame, I would ask them to pay for your B&B for their inconvinience caused to you. If they dont agree then tell them you want your money back as your not getting what you have paid for. Thats a real shame. :hug:

I don't think 2 hours is that far to travel for training... I travel 90 minutes for mine and it's well worth it :D

No, it's not a big deal to travel for good training.

I suppose when she booked, she booked Birmingham for a reason and now this has changed. Thankfully the course hasn't been cancelled completely, so a blessing even if you have to travel to Wales.

I need to do some training in London soon and I'm pooping myself as I don't understand the trains and driving in London is a HUGE no-no for me :eek: I can virtually guarantee that the training session won't see me as I will be completely lost and wandering the street of London !!

hi,
i'm doing my course at the moment with Marianne Manley in Ludlow i really must say she is fantastic and you will not regret being trained by her.

As for traveling i do understand, i drive (well hubby does as i can't) from Wolverhampton to Ludlow it takes us just under 1hr. have you thought about the train ??? as this was one of my options and when i drive into Ludlow the train station is only 5 min walk if that (same road) so i might travel by train in september for my day 4.

Good Luck Hun :hug:

It really is so handy when you can train local to you - however this is so rare. When I trained with LCN it used to be a hard slog along the coast roads to get there and could take up to 2 hours. I felt like I'd done a day's work before I got there! And just recently I had to fly from Spain to the UK for some training! But it was so worth it! I hope you have a great time and enjoy a few days away on your own :hug:

Sorry doesn't help with your travel times but I just thought I'd point out that Ludlow isn't actually in Wales.

It's in Shropshire, which is in England.

It does look quite a lot like Wales and the people do talk funny but it's definately in England. So at least you're not going to have to cross any borders for your training.
thanks for clarifying that for me i must seem really dumb!
