Firstly, as many of you will know, from 25 May data protection laws are changing. Part of that change is a requirement to ‘opt in’ to email updates like Adult Learning’s ‘in the loop’.

If you would like to continue to receive our updates, with information on courses and activities from Adult Learning and Stoke Lodge, you can do that by following the link below and confirming your email address.

If you do nothing then your email address will be removed from our list and we won’t contact you after the 25 May.

We’d hate to see you go, so please take a moment to resign up so we can stay in touch. We don’t share your email with anyone else and you can unsubscribe from our updates at any time.
Ok so that is the legal bit over… now for some updates.

Stoke Lodge

We are in the process of planning and collecting together all the information for the 2018/19 course guide and final information, dates and spaces won’t be available till later in the summer term as usual. We will send out an email to ‘in the loop’ subscribers as soon as booking is available and keep you updated nearer the time.

Stoke Lodge Kitchen

Some of you may know we have replaced our demonstration kitchen at Stoke lodge with a shiny new kitchen (and had our food safety rating renewed, very pleased to say we got 5 stars).
