Sorry, wrote a nice, long, detailed response only for ARRSE to fcuking crash and lose it all.
Anyway, try to ignore the whingeing b*astards above. The EHT course is a good one - very demanding! You'll be expected to show a deal more maturity and responsibility than your trainee-CMT colleagues, as your chosen trade brings faster promotion. In fact, you'll probably get your first stripe before you complete your Class 1 trg.
The accommodation at Keogh leave a little to be desired, but other places are worse and it's what you make of it. Food's alright. The facilities are good, though, witha great gym, massive trg area on the doorstep for running on, lake for fishing and kayaking, squash and tennis courts and a good size sports hall. There's also a good academic library, a well-run WRVS suite and a free Internet suite (it's got CCTV, though, so be careful what you look at!!).
Same rumours doing the rounds at Gib Bks about Hawley lake, which are completely untrue as well. If it's that much of a bio-hazard or toxic why is is teeming with fish ???!!! We are talking about Mychett lake that's connected to the canal ?
Then again, you lot don't even know the market value of the real estate you're sat on, so I wouldn't expect any accurate comments about water safety either ...
