Eleven students who had all been attending regular weekly training sessions with Helen took part in an assessment day at her training ground near Evesham.

Our Gloucestershire assessor, Hilary Smith travelled to Helen’s site to carry out the tests on a beautiful sunny day at the beginning of July.

Congratulations to all the students taking part in their Grade One tests.

A special well done goes to Hazel Burton and Skye who passed the Grade One without dropping a single point gaining a Distinction and a perfect score of 80 out of 80.
