The WEA runs Spring and Autumn term adult education courses in the Village Hall.wea logo

The 5-week Spring Course was a subject close to home - Happy, Healthy Holidays on the Essex Coast - and was a well-attended visit to the past, reminiscing and looking at the development and heritage of holidays at Essex seaside resorts during the 19th & 20th Centuries.

The tutor, Claire Parker, a respected local historian and enthusiastic and energetic lecturer, encouraged discussions on various aspects of Essex resorts to answer the questions: when and why did holidaying at the seaside along Essex's 'Sunshine Coast' become popular?


Details of the Autumn Course will appear here later this year.
