The Workers Educational Association (WEA)

With WEA we enjoy exploring  new topics over a ten week period in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, led by tutors who are very knowledgeable in their subjects and good at stimulating  and supporting discussion. The WEA is, in fact, a nationwide registered educational charity with no party political or religious ties. It is the largest  voluntary sector provider of adult education  in England and Scotland, covering a wide range of classes. WEA is run locally by volunteers with professional area administration and WEA freelance tutors.

No experience or previous qualifications  are necessary to join our courses , only an interest in the subject and a curiosity to learn more in good company

Our local Ickleton and Chesterfords branch is one of more than 25 in Cambridgeshire and has been running for more than 30 years. Two courses are held each year, in the autumn and spring terms. They are held on  10 Wednesday mornings in Ickleton Village Hall at 10am. Sessions last for 1.5 hours with coffee and tea served before the class from 9.45am. The modern venue is very accessible with a hearing loop in the room and good parking  close outside.

Course details are published in village newsletters, on posters and on websites as well as in the WEA course guide for Cambridgeshire and  Bedfordshire  published in late spring. We also try to send a newsletter to members in August.

            The Branch Secretary is Margaret Beston  (01799 530 454)
            The Branch Treasurer is Delyth Williams  (01799 500 347)
