NORTH YORKSHIRE
Linton Memorial Hall, The Pastures, Linton Lane, Linton, Wetherby LS22 4HL

Linwood Village Hall

We have decided to run another two  courses here in 2021, near to Nel’s home. Linton Memorial Hall has recently been refurbished and is in the picturesque village of Linton, very near to the market town of Wetherby. It’s a three day non- residential course but there are some lovely places to stay very nearby including Wood Hall, if you fancy pampering yourself. It’s only a five minute drive and is situated within beautiful countryside.

DEVON
Ashburton Town Hall, North Street, Ashburton, Devon, TQ13 7QQ
Ashburton is just off the A38, about 21 miles South of Exeter.
It is a lovely little town, very close to Dartmoor and the beautiful countryside of Devon, with lots of independent shops, restaurants and cafes to visit. The Town Hall is full of space and light, and we are really looking forward to our first course here.
This  a three day non-residential course but there are some really lovely places to stay very nearby.
As there are so many varied places to buy lunch here, we thought that it might be nice to have a change on this course. So lunch is not included in the course fee, and you can go and buy lunches of your own choice, or bring your own along with you.
