We’ve learnt of someone fairly new to Noosa who badly hurt her foot when she dropped a plate on it last week. She would dearly appreciate some help for a few hours once or twice weekly for 6 weeks while she recovers – light home duties, shopping etc – happy to pay. She lives in [...]

Last year the feedback (2012 Training Day) was overwhelmingly positive and I’m sure this year will be just as exciting. The day consists of three sets of electives and is a wonderful [...]
