Thursday 25th July 2019 was the hottest July day on record with temperatures reaching 38.1C. That week at YTA we had a variety of courses running, it was very hot and everyone was suffering in the heat whilst trying to learn a new skill. Tiling, plumbing, kitchen fitting, carpentry and joinery courses were all running but it was the plasterers that were really suffering. Mixing plaster, up and down ‘hop ups’, back and forth to their mix and skimming their walls and ceilings. It was getting sweaty!
As staff we tried keeping everyone going with cool water, we stocked up on supplies they day before as the 24th was still quite a warm day too. We decided that there was only one thing for it, a BBQ! Let’s just do it and grab a few disposable BBQ’s from ASDA over the road, several packs of burgers and sausages and a load of ice lollies. Spirits were definitely lifted and it was a much needed enjoyable lunch hour where we all made the most of the superb weather.
We then received a lovely review from Marc and Josh who travelled up from South Wales following their plastering course.
Had an absolutely fantastic time at the YTA training centre. I went with my brother in law to do the plastering course and they went above and beyond to ensure our confidence and skills were up there before we left. Dave knows his craft, a great instructor and he certainly brought the best out of both of us. The atmosphere was incredible, met some great people and made some good friends. Graham the owner and all of the team members were the nicest people we’ve ever met, he went out to get supplies for a bbq and kept us in good spirits with ice creams due to the crazy weather, you won’t get that anywhere else! I would highly recommend this training centre if you’re looking to learn a new skill or skills. Thanks to Graham and Dave for an incredible experience Marc & Josh
Many thanks for the lovely review Marc, glad you and Josh both enjoyed the course. There was no way we couldn’t have a BBQ and Ice lollies on the hottest day of the year wether you are learning how to plaster or not! I think everyone on all the courses appreciated it too. Hope the plastering goes well and we may well see you back for a tiling course in the future when you are ready.
