Women explore education options at Aointas Adult Learning Festival
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.
