For 2023 - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
Weekend breaks by train to Melksham, Wiltshire

Melksham is a market town just 100 miles to the west of London, situated on the River Avon just 2 miles from the Kennet and Avon Canal, 4 miles from the Cotswold village of Lacock, six miles from Bradford-on-Avon, eight miles from the Westbury White Horse and under 10 miles from Bath. There's plenty to see and do in the area - for a weekend, or for a week.

New for 2014, Melksham has train services all day, every day, making it a great base for visiting the area by public transport as well as by car. Trains will whisk you from Paddington to Swindon, where you change for the new TransWilts service - a total train journey time as little as 90 minutes.

To celebrate this new service, we're offering three nights for the price of two (if you include a Saturday night), or five nights for the price of 4 at any time during the week at Well House Manor. And we'll add in a complimentary collection from the station when you arrive, and lift to the station when you leave - it's not a long walk, but you'll appreciate a lift with your luggage.

Well House Manor has double or twin rooms, all en suite and fitted out to an excpetionally high stanadrd. We're charter members of VisitWiltshire, our local tourism association, and our team is fully briefed on local attractions, places to eat, and transport options. We love this part of the country, and look forward to welcoming you to enjoy it.

Please book by phone (01225 708225) or via our web site at [here] and enter coupon code "#FGW" to claim your free night and pickup. Please let us know which train you'll be arriving on in good time, so that we'll be there to collect you.

This offer is being promoted by First Great Western during May and June 2014, and is valid for any stay booked before 31st July, whenever the stay takes place.
