Hi Sarah, I can happily tell you the in-service training went really well,
everyone has been commenting on how much they enjoyed the day and learnt
a lot from it.  Malcolm was great with the group – his extensive knowledge
of the field was clearly evident, as well as his ability in a workshop
environment, dealing with our different experiences and skills. I think
we all learnt a great deal more than we expected to, and I certainly
feel more confident to pass on my new skills to our clients. I’ve also
been inspired to find out more about puppetry, and next time I’m in
Glasgow I’ll definately make the effort to visit the Centre. Please pass on my warm
Best wishes Carla Angus Arts Tutor Neighbourhood Services Central Aberdeen
