I`ve had a brlliant experience at Goldtrowel doing the 4 week plastering course (over a long period of time!) and have learnt a huge amount. Questions were met by the guys with patience and a sense of humour and nothing was a problem. I`ve really enjoyed myself - thanks one and all, it`s been emotional. Fiona Cox - Essex, UK
