Our new home is now at Watts Hall which is part of Christ Church premises in the centre of Uxbridge, in Redford Way, UB8 1SZ, off Belmont Road. At present we are running one class per week only, which is for 18 year olds and above. We are not able to run a Children’s class at the moment but we are hoping to find suitable premises which are available on Saturday mornings, but this is proving difficult.
