Hello everyone and warm welcome back to the autumn term at Adult Learning. I hope you all enjoyed our glorious summer and are looking forward to re-joining us here at Stoke Lodge for continued courses or something completely new!

Plus lots more this term and throughout the year.

Something is coming to Stoke Lodge… curious?

“Do crabs think people walk sideways?”  “What is our soul?”  “What is gravity made of?”

On Monday 1st October ‘We The Curious’ (previously At Bristol) are bringing a special installation to the grounds of Stoke Lodge for one day only! A strange structure coming to life with questions and curiosity. What will you ask?

Tea and Coffee volunteers

We are delighted this term to welcome PROPS. PROPS are an independent charity providing opportunities and support for adults with learning difficulties. PROPS will be serving tea and coffee on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  All the volunteers are new to Stoke Lodge and I know everyone will say hello and make them welcome.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

On Monday 24th September we will be hosting a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan.
There will be some yummy cakes as well as the usual tea and biscuits (and if you would like to bring/donate a cake that would be fantastic). Everyone is welcome to pop in and join us between 10am and 4pm.
