We looked at many workshop packages and decided The Leading Hand was the best. That was more than 20 years ago. Since then The Leading Hand has gone from strength to strength, improving the professionalism of our workshop management along the way. It is a long-term relationship that has paid big dividends. I’m glad we made that decision.
