Hi Barry,welcome to the forum.
A few of the BKA's can be a little slow to reply at times.
See if you can find a timetable for them and turn up at a meeting or find the secretaries number and give them a buzz.
It may just help to show you are keen past the initial enquiry stage.

cheers but already phoned a few weeks ago. good news is starting a course next week fingers crossed. but if anyone local would still like to give us extra tuition that would be great.

is there no one near colchester prepared to share thier knowledge with us. Have been going to lessons with the ebka but there is a large group and the man taking it (Derek) is doing a sterling job but it would be nice to get a less crowded learning experience and relieve some of the pressure for Derek, so come on give us a chance.:willy_nilly:

Not sure if you are still looking, but if you are, I'm based near Southend and have various hives dotted around SE Essex (the closest to you is in Hullbridge)

I'm more than happy to help out
