Melanie was unable to provide childcare for the days I required, however Melanie posted my requirements onto a facebook page and gave me various numbers of childminders who could accomodate the days I needed, luckily the 1st lady I contacted was very nice, we arranged to meet and now we agreed the space. Thanks for your help Melanie!
