JDFD SNOW POLICY

With wintery weather predicted this week please see below our SNOW POLICY

Our snow policy is that is a school/venue/hall is open we do our upmost to get a teacher there and will run our classes as usual.

If we are unable to get a teacher there and a school/venue/hall is open then we will make up or credit that class at a later date.

If the school/venue/hall is closed and we cannot use it, then that class is lost for the participants

 We post updates on any changes or closures on here and on our facebook & twitter page

If you see no changes reported then classes are running as usual.
