I thoroughly enjoyed the HYWB course which was facilitated by Jim who had a teaching style which enabled all members of the group to participate and also complete the trainers section with confidence. I am looking forward to sharing this information with other members of the community as the content supports health and well being. Participants were warm and welcoming in an informal learning environment which I would highly recommend. The resources provided were in more than helpful in terms of being a participant and also for future facilitation. Thank you
