Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Andrew Bigby
Hello, my name is Andrew Bigby and I am President of the Association of UK School of Professional Toastmasters. I live in Letchworth with my wife Carol. We were recently married at our local Parish Church, St Michael's. On my photos page you can see one of our wedding photos in front of the fountain with my fellow Toastmasters. I have been involved in many weddings and am also a Professional Funeral Celebrant so I am quite used to listening and helping families through stressful times...
