I bought a voucher for my husband for his bday. He was so excited and all his friends said I was the coolest wife ever. Waterside were so professional, they kept communicating with us through the whole journey. Absolutely awesome. My husband was over the moon. Sweaty and child like excited to show us his artwork! They even took photos of him to brag about his "hard hammering" moments. It's going to be difficult to beat this prezzie next year - maybe an advanced course!
