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 current course Imperial China, Land and People, has just finished. Once again we had over 30 people in the class, including some first-time WEA attendees and some from as far afield as Coggeshall. Our thanks to tutor David Prynn for a fascinating insight and his wife Ann for her technological support!
Following on from this course, Sue, our wonderful social secretary, has arranged a trip to the British Museum where we will be able to view some of the objects mentioned by David and gain further insight into the Imperial Dynasties.
In April we held our end-of-term lunch at a local hostelry and were delighted to welcome tutor David and his wife as our guests. This was a very social occasion enjoyed by all the attendees!
After 8 years as our hard-working secretary, Angie Wilson handed over the position to Joyce Rodger at our recent AGM. Angie was thanked profusely for everything she has done, during her time in charge the branch has doubled its regular course numbers and gone from strength to strength. Angie was presented with a Gardening token from the group members in appreciation of her efforts, and we're pleased to say that she will be staying on as a Committee Member.
Our summer coffee mornings are held monthly on the first Tuesday of the month between 10.30am and noon, approx. and always prove very popular. The first one this year will be on 4th June and new members will be made most welcome. Please contact the secretary below for further details, venue etc.
We hope to hearing about our next courses very shortly - watch this space!
