WELCOME TO BRIGHTLINGSEA WEA WEBPAGE

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 was GEOFFREY CHAUCER - CIVIL SERVANT & POET with tutor Graham Platts. 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, arranged a 'Chaucer walk' for us in April. Led by our knowledgeable guide, Tina, we visited many spots in and around the City of London associated with Chaucer and his pilgrims. Here we are outside Leadenhall Market

Also in April we held our end-of-term lunch at a local hostelry and were delighted to welcome Graham and his wife as our guests. This was a very social occasion enjoyed by the 35 attendees!

Our summer coffee mornings will start on Tuesday 5th June, and are held on the first Tuesday of the month until September. Details can be obtained from our secretary. Please feel free to come along and join us!
