Workers Education since 1903

wealogoWorkers Educational Association

The village branch of the WEA welcomes you to join us.

We are a small part of the national ‘Workers Educational Association’ which is strictly non-political and open to all.  Since 1903 it has aimed to promote adult education in Social History, Current Affairs, Literature, the Arts and other non-technical subjects.

The name ‘Workers Educational Association’ may sound rather stern but in fact our evenings are friendly and informal and our tutors are of a high calibre. We have enjoyed courses on the ‘Social History of East Anglia’, ‘Weather and Climate’, ‘The Art of Gardening’, ‘Landscapes in Literature’ and ‘Natural History’ amongst others.

Autumn courses commence in September and Spring courses in January. They each last for 10 weeks and we publicise them in the Parish magazines and West Bergholt Bulletin and by posters displayed locally as well as on the village diary (here).

Our branch is fortunate in having the use of the bright, well equipped Methodist Church hall on Tuesday evenings. Located in Chapel Lane, it is easily accessible from all parts of the village. Indeed, it is so handy that many people leave their cars at home and walk to the hall. The meetings start at 8.00 p.m. and last for an hour and a half, with a break for coffee.

We encourage you to try one of our courses and welcome you to sample the first evening without committing yourself to the rest of the course.
