Melanie Cairns, Head of Adult Education, Leisure and Community comments, “We’re offering a diverse range of courses for adults that start this September. Studying one of our courses really helps improve people’s health and well-being, by offering a fun way to socialise and make new friends whilst learning a new skill. Engaging with adults from across the district, through a variety of courses and working together is also contributing towards developing stronger local communities.”
