Founded in 1903, the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) is a charity and the UK's largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. In 2013/14 the WEA delivered 9,700 part-time courses for over 70,000 students in England and Scotland.
Sadly, after nearly 20 years, local WEA organisers have announced that this will be their last term of talks for the Carry on Learning scheme. However, they hope that residents of Haddenham and local villages will find something of interest in the Summer 2016 Programme and will be able to participate.
