NEW SERVER - 11.9.2020 ... Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Effective fundraising

The charity evening, arranged by four local restaurants in aid of Bangladeshi flood relief last night, seemed a great success; from a quick count up around the room, I'm estimating that several thousand pounds were raised, which isn't at all bad for a wet Sunday evening in Melksham. Good to see the owners of the Refa, the Sultan, the Melksham Tandoori and the Spice of Bengal (Calne) working together when they're competitors in their day-to-day businesses. All food given free, as was the entertainment / bands.

Lisa and I came away saying - "Yes, that's how it should be done"; I for one have spent long days in the past running jumble sales for local charities, raising perhaps a hundred pound of profit for long hours before hand and on the day, but last night they had it right. Well done.

See Melksham Dining for contact information for restaurants and takeaways in Melksham.

As a separate subject - I do have concerns about money given for charity actually reaching the people it's intended for rather that running a vast machine along the way. However - that is not to decry last night's magnificent effort which was excellent and where care was taken to translate the amounts given into the effect it would have on the ground.

Commentatorsays ...
Graham:We ate at the Refa last night. I understand that 200 people attended, paying 10 pouns each raised 2000 pounds, and an additional 700 pounds was donated. Congratulations.
