We have attended several UTT training sessions and thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them we even got cake and tea too
The training allowed me to learn and progress at my own speed, and I learnt so much from the sessions. I am now confident lighting fires (safely) with my group and has inspired me to do more cooking with them
