I met Annette and Ann through the Home Education Network, and what a fantastic place the heritage centre is! It's a truly lovely venue, with beautiful grounds and a lovely Victorian era building like something from a fairy tale. I've attended several workshops there and have come away enriched, it's an absolute gem, well done Annette and Ann
