We have been working really hard over the summer making sure Stoke Lodge is looking its best for the new term.
A couple of rooms have had a lick of paint and we have replaced some of the classroom chairs but the most dramatic change is really the wooden floors downstairs.  The floors were in a really poor condition and have been repaired, sanded and sealed.  We’re really pleased with the results, it has made the rooms much lighter and brighter.  Just to finish off the foyer area the fireplace surround has also had a clean and the front door has had a lick of varnish.

Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to serve tea and coffee during the morning and afternoon breaks. If you think you could help we would love to hear from you.  Volunteers are given an Adult Learning voucher each term as a thank you for their time. If you would like to find out more you can chat to Louise Weller on 0734 203 1888 or 0117 903 8813 (Mon – Fri 9.00am – 4.00pm) or email louise.weller@bristol.gov.uk

2017/18 Courses

Enrolments for courses are going well with some courses completely full.
If you haven’t enrolled already for this term you might want to give us a call and sign up.

Staffing

We have new evening assistant for Stoke Lodge while we go through the process of recruiting a permanent replacement for Toby.  Dan will be working evenings and will be staffing the building as well as serving tea and coffee at break times.  We are also pleased to welcome Sam, who will be working in the office in the mornings Monday to Friday,  Sam joins us from library services and we are really happy to have her as part of the team. So a couple of new faces to look out for as well as some familiar ones (notice I say ‘familiar’ rather than ‘old’ faces).

Coffee Morning

This September at Stoke Lodge we are taking part in the Macmillan big coffee morning on Monday 25th September 2017 at 11:00am. Why not join us for a cuppa and a slice of cake. All the money raised will be donated to Macmillan and help to make a huge difference to people facing cancer. Every cake and cuppa bought ensures you are helping to fund Macmillan nurses, to provide cancer information and help with financial support like grants and advice.
