I have been studying over a year and a half and found that hiding away in the library kept me focused. The staff are so friendly and it is a lovely environment. They have some classes and sessions for children.

I have always found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Opening hours need reviewing but that's not the staff's responsibility. I guess it's budget cuts.
