Joining a Class
"In the paper we saw an advert for retired people and absolute beginners and that is how we started. Learning something new is the no.1 thing, even at our age it is very rewarding to find that you can learn something new."
Meeting new people
"I have made some good friends here. It is extremely important to me because I just really enjoy being with people.
Learning with others
"It has definitely helped learning with a group of people, I wouldn't like to learn alone. When you have got other people around, what one person comes up with helps wash off on to other people."
"The groups are a good size so you get the help of the tutor whenever you need it."
Building for the future
"My course gave me the confidence to go on and do other things."
