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.
Mad week done - so come for Croquet

It's been a mad week ... i was going to add "here in Melksham", but Lisa and I haven't been in Melksham - we've been all over the country (or it feels like it). We got back on the train to Melksham at twenty past seven yesterday evening, and I was straight into a meeting at 7:30 at the Town Hall (Peter, big "Thank you" for the pickup at the station. I never cease to admire your thoughfulness). Tonight will be the first time for over a week that I've spent a second night in the same bed. Much more will be seen, heard and written about our trip over the coming months ... watch this space!

And so to our Edwardian Croquet day. It's a lovely day at Well House Manor, and as I sit in the training room, I hear the clonk of wood on wood - such a reminder of going round to Gran's house in Petts Wood in the 1960s on Sunday afternoons, setting out the croquet, playing a few rounds, and the Sunday tea - very often a salmon salad in the days that salmon was a big luxury. I remember that the sun always shone, the big oak tree provided shelter and it was a quiet oasis during the week - a Sunday ritual.

If you read this in the next few hours, we're open for Croquet on the lawn at Well House Manor until 4 p.m. today (Saturday). The museum is open - free admission - until 5 p.m., and continues to be open every afternoon, 7 days a week, as are our cream teas.
