A new exhibitor at Royston Open Secrets and a great new resource for the local area is Build Train, based at BelleVue Farm, Royston. Owner and trainer, Peter Jones, has set up a facility where individuals and groups at all levels of capability can go to learn building and construction skills.
Peter told me,
“I have enjoyed woodwork and carpentry since I was 9 years old and I want to share that enthusiasm with a wide range of people so that they can enjoy the fun. We have a variety of packages for inexperienced DIYers, people who want to gain qualifications and for those who want to work on their individual projects under expert supervision.
We’re not just talking about the men here. There has been a 92% increase in the levels of women enrolling on DIY courses this year alone so we offer Diva Days for groups of women who want to learn more DIY skills.
We also arrange corporate days which are great for team building while having fun and learning new skills.
At Royston Open Secrets we will be promoting our Father’s Day special. You can buy your Dad a unique gift of a 3 hours taster session, which includes a pint of beer and a ploughman’s lunch, for just £30. For £50 they can enjoy a whole day of tuition. All of our courses include materials, access to tools, tuition and supervision.
There is much more that we offer but have a look at our website http://www.buildtrain.co.uk/home.html for more information. Even better, come and have a chat with me on Sunday.”
I’m not sure I’m a Diva, Peter, but I will definitely be along for a chat.
