Adult education promoted at community café

Adult education was the focus of the latest Friday morning community café in Childwall.

Residents found out more about courses including flower making, arts and crafts, massage and using the internet to make life easier by shopping and organising things on the internet.

Ward Councillor Jeremy Wolfson said: “These activities proved to be very popular with residents and gave them an opportunity to learn more about the courses on offer. I would like to thank the Adult Learning Service for their support and attending the event.”

Councillor Lana Orr, Cabinet member for employment and skills, said: “The Adult Learning Service offers a range of courses which enable people to develop new hobbies as well as essential life skills and it is great that local residents were able to find out more at the Friday café.”

Ward councillor, Cllr Frank Hont, added: “The volunteers at the community cafe do a great job and it was a great event to be part of.”

The Friday Café, which was set up using Mayoral Neighbourhood Fund money, has run successfully for more than four years and is supported by ward councillors Frank Hont, Jeremy Wolfson and Liz Parsons.
