Bray People - - NEWS -

IT WAS AOIN­TAS Adult Learn­ers’ fes­ti­val week and the WEB Women’s Group took the chance to in­form their mem­bers and guests about their choices.

The lo­cal group for women over 45 met last Thurs­day morn­ing in the Lit­tle Flower Hall, Holy Redeemer Church, Bray.

At­ten­dees had the chance to ex­plore their ed­u­ca­tional ca­reer and life op­tions as well as en­joy a cup of tea and meet peo­ple whose lives have been trans­formed by fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion.

WEB women’s group was formed in 2007 with the ob­jec­tive of en­gag­ing women over 47 in the so­cial and eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties of the town.

For more in­for­ma­tion about WEB con­tact Elly Fair­bairn, chair of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, on (085) 7185684. She ex­plained that the pur­pose of the group is to in­volve women over 45 in the com­mu­nity and to en­cour­age fun, friend­ship and, most im­por­tantly, ed­u­ca­tion. ‘ Just be­cause you have reached a cer­tain age doesn’t mean you have to stop learn­ing,’ she said.

At Aoin­tas Week were Lolly De­laney, Mary O'Sul­li­van, Lour­des De­laney (Adult Guid­ance Ser­vice), Deirdre Cleary, Maura Ryan, Cather­ine Green (Adult Guid­ance Ser­vice), Vivi­enne Nixon and Elly Fair­barin.
