cancel the class on the 3rd March!

Hi all

We never like to cancel a workshop, but due to the bad weather we have decided to cancel the class on the 3rd March.

We had planned to send you all snow boots and a husky team, but we then realised that the budget didn’t stretch that far!

What about my MONEY? It’s ok, you can move your booking to April the 7th or the 5th May. Or if you would prefer we can give you a full refund.

Why is the class really cancelled Nick? Is it because you want to build a snowman with your son?.. YEP!
