Cancellations Policy

If we do not have enough people enrolled one week before a session is scheduled we will cancel the session and inform anyone who has booked. This also allows the speaker sufficient time to make other plans. We hope that cancelling a session is never necessary but also realise that having only a small number of people attending a session is no longer workable.
