Your Community Learning Centre

Since the Centre opened just a few months ago, some forty students have attended over sixty different Adult Learning courses at the Old Fire Station, Tysoe.  Classes run to date include: Computing for Beginners (four separate groups), World Religions, First Aid, Flower Arranging, Cookery, Yoga, and Signing.  Broadband is due to be installed before the end of July which will enable us to go ahead with the planned drop-in Internet Café.

Courses scheduled to start in September include more advanced, as well as new beginner, computer classes.  Hobbies and interests are catered for in planned Pottery, Rag Rug Making, Sugar-craft, Digital Cameras, Christmas Crafts, Genealogy, Art, Lace Making and Golf one day workshops, day or evening classes.  We are hoping to interest local businesses in Basic Food Hygiene and Hygiene Refresher courses.

Learning opportunities at the Old Fire Station continue to be subsidised as part of Government’s support for rural areas and we are able to offer all places at a nominal £5 per student irrespective of the length / duration of a workshop or series of classes.

To cope with demand, a second telephone line is shortly to be installed at the Centre solely for use by Adult Learning.  BT have suggested that the new number is likely to be 688244 – but nothing in this life is certain!  The phone is most likely to be manned between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., but there will be an answer-phone facility.  If all else fails, ring Douglas Nethercleft on 680041 to find out more about what’s on offer or book your place on a course.
