Information on our Code Clubs


The following information is on our website. Please read then go to librarykats email to enquire about when the next available programme starts. We are currently in the middle of running the two beginner series. Once a series starts, no other participants can attend as it is a step by step programme.

As it is heading towards the end of the year, the code clubs will be slowing down and we will start again in February.
