Look back at March

Well, March didn’t turn out to be quite as good as February, weather wise, but it has to be said that it wasn’t far behind and resulted in plenty of training, both on our usual Saturday and some mid-week sessions. We also tried two new venues for our training ‘end destinations’.

Look back at February

Here’s a look ‘back’ at February with ARNY. February turned out to be an astonishing month weather wise, although the first few days were still giving us minus overnight temperatures, that soon stopped and we ended with the warmest February on record! Not bad when you consider that last February we were being battered by ‘The Beast from the East’. The good weather saw a more than average numbers of associates taking training early in the year, with 7 different associates enjoying 12 training sessions between them.
