Workers Education since 1903

The local WEA was formed 40 years ago this year

A group of locals formed the WEA West Bergholt Branch over 40 years ago on Tuesday 20th October 1981. They launched their first ‘season’ of lectures in spring 1982 on the topic of “The Citizen and the Law – criminal, family, and consumer”; local lawyers presented the course.

Over the years subjects have included:

  • architecture,
  • film,
  • history,
  • industry,
  • literature,
  • music,
  • poetry,
  • climate, and many more,

… and have been well supported. Now, with an aging membership, attendance has steadily reduced year by year and the branch is no longer viable unless more people come forward to help run it.

Organising local courses is not difficult and much support is available from the local WEA Education Coordinator, Debbie Young. If you are interested in bringing this valuable asset back to the community please contact Debbie at [email protected].
