Branch News


We are a friendly WEA group which meets at the Parish Hall, Brightlingsea CO7 0BP

on Tuesday mornings.

We run two courses per year in the autumn and spring terms.

We also have social events such as a group lunch and summer coffee mornings.

Our most recent course GEOFFREY CHAUCER - CIVIL SERVANT & POET with tutor Graham Platts, has just finished. This was a superbly delivered, varied and stimulating course covering all aspects of Chaucer's life, times and work, and was very much enjoyed by (once again) record numbers for our class. Here is Graham in full flow!

We were pleased to welcome new members from Wivenhoe and other nearby villages and hope they will return!

Sue, our wonderful social secretary, has arranged a 'Chaucer walk' for us next month in London, which we are very much looking forward to. We will also be having our end-of-term lunch at a local hostelry in April and are delighted that Graham and his wife will be our guests. Our summer coffee mornings will start on Tuesday 1st May, details can be obtained from our secretary. Please feel free to come along and join us!
