Welcome to the Ardleigh WEA page
We are at present coming to the end of a 9 week course with James CLARKE on Films and Fairy Tales. As this was not a course we had put on our shortlist many of us went along thinking it would not be of interest to us. How wrong can you be, James has given us a wonderful course and has such a wide range of knowledge on his subject. We have all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Then we come to our January course "The History on Colchester Part II" with Patrick DENNEY. We had Patrick for a course in Spring of this year and this is a follow on one. This is a ten week course of 2 hours and this is where are having problems. Because of the extra hours involved the course fee came out at £75 and from discussions with our present and previous members it appeared that we would have no takers or so very few at this rate and therefore we would not get the numbers required to run the course. We have therefore taken the decision to make the course fee £50, and hope that as so many people like Patrick that it will encourage enough people to come along.
So do turn up at 2.00 pm. on Thursday 17th January 2017 and see if it is the course for you.
