Just a little reminder about the Stoke Lodge Open Day

Thursday 17 July between 11 and 5

Come along and join tasters including Literature, Tai Chi, British History and Film Studies.

Summer Open Day Poster full page programmeTry a yummy German waffle, explore the fantastic art displays and watch demos in a range of subjects like sewing, jewellery making, watercolours and acrylics.

There is lots of information about courses available and you can enjoy a proper look round the centre and grounds.  I bet even those of you who have been coming for years spot something new!

We are delighted that Cllr Barbara Janke will be there at 11am to open the day and welcome learners and visitors along with Jane Taylor, Service Manager

So pop along, chat to tutors and find out about courses.  We are looking forward to a great day, celebrating the end of our summer term and looking forward to all the exciting new courses ahead!

I’ll be there, of course, and would love to meet you so seek me out and say hello!

As always please share with your friends, family and community, the more the merrier!
