This is the tenth year that the workshops have been running for the community. All you need to take with you is a positive attitude, comfortable clothing, a drinks bottle and towel plus something to eat during the breaks. Please note that the workshop takes people out of their comfort zone and can be both physically and mentally demanding at times. Open to those aged 13 and above.
