Welcome to HOAC 2014

We are experiencing problems with our website, only the group information can be seen and nothing about courses, birthday parties and memberships is available.

If you go to the search at the top of the page and type in what you are interested in, the pages will appear. Unfortunately the pages are out of date as regard to prices and dates, but it will give you a rough idea for this year.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Please call the Centre on 01895 824171 for a brochure and further information.
