For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
Town Crier competiton

Through the archway at the old fire station, you can see Melksham's market place and all the old buildings around it. Two hundred years ago, Melksham was the largest town for many miles around and that history is still there to be seen.


Today was the first of what we hope will become an annual Town Crier competition, with criers from local Wiltshire towns as well as far afield - Bromyard and Truro and Llandovery ... competing for various cups and trophy on the basis of cries about health eating. Most of the criers are somewhat rotund, and were joking that they had not followed their own advise.


Judging was on dress, on content, on projection and on politeness and decorum, and while each of the four judges marks was being correlated, we were entertained by the Morris Dancers


It's good to see the market place in Melksham vibrant, and the publicity this brings to the town. Personally, I wouldn't be wanting to shout above the traffic, but each to his own ... or nearly to his own, for each started "hear ye, hear ye" and ended with "God save the Queen"
