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 next course is GEOFFREY CHAUCER - CIVIL SERVANT & POET with tutor Graham Platts, is starting on Tuesday 9th January 2018 at 10am. Please see below for further details. There are still a couple of places remaining so please do come along on the day if you are interested.

Last term's course, BRUNEL, AN ENGINEER'S LIFE, with tutor Roger Mannion, attracted a record course numbers, and was enjoyed by all. We had an excellent excursion to London in late November to see first-hand some of Brunel's work and to visit the Brunel museum. Thanks to our social secretary, Sue, for organising this. It was a particularly cold day and awful traffic almost caused us to miss the boat (literally!) but we made it - here is the group about to investigate the museum.
