Have you contacted Wendy Killner at the CHA office? She has access to the careers network database, so may be able to put you in touch with someone.

You can e-mail her at administrator@chassociation.org

Good luck!

By the way, in which area of the country are you looking to find something?
Ba.A / Mid. B 1972 - 1978

I am living in West Sussex so anywhere near there would be ideal, however, I am open to any ideas/offers especially situated in the South of England.

Thanks for the advice

For that matter there are all those places which arrange weddings, bar mitzvah's (?sp) or, even better, get to shadow one of those society gurus who arrange the entire event for peeps down to the clothes, food, place, guests, floor shows ..........

Look in "The Lady" for adverts

best of luck
