Testimonials

“Being part of BBDRC makes me put my trainers on and get out there! Tuesday and Thursday sessions, whatever the weather, are hard work and completing these in the company of others gives me a real sense of wellbeing and satisfaction.”

Jayne Capps-Jenner, Member

“The amazing beginners course coaches were always encouraging and supportive and I am so grateful to them for giving up their time to steer us. It was a very worthwhile course and I thoroughly recommend it.”

Sara, Member

“Gosh, those six weeks have whizzed past. Huge thanks to David, Clare, fudge and Graham for so cheerfully giving up your time to steer us. It was a very worthwhile course and I thoroughly recommend it – though I know I am preaching to the converted. Improvers, here I come!”
