Various activities were organised around Bassetlaw in the celebration of Adult Learners Week recently.
Our Community team have been busy working with other local organisations such as the FOYPIB, WEA, ACLS and the Library Services to arrange a series of tasters sessions at Worksop Library and these include craft, IT, with work on show that students have produced throughout the year.
Celebration of achievements were held in Manton and Langold Sure Start Centre where certificates were presented to mums and dads who have completed courses whilst their children are playing and being supervised by trained staff at the centre. They also held an open day to encourage young families to come and look around the centres. Diversity in action with a wide range of nationalities at the Manton Centre with an international cuisine buffet supplied by the students.
A colourful sensory panel, which has been design and created by local families depicting the four seasons in just ten weeks, was unveiled at Harworth Children’s Centre on the 17th May by Ian Campbell, Chairman to Bassetlaw Council. Ian Campbell, unveiled the panel expressing his delight at the commitment and dedication of all involved in the project and acknowledged the hard work and effort that had gone into creating such a masterpiece. He said “It is fantastic that parents have worked together and created this for their community and for future parents and children to enjoy at the centre.” Ian also presented the parents with certificates.
Jane Tomson, one of the volunteers commented “I really had a great time taking part and enjoyed every minute. I feel really proud and privileged to have been involved in the project.”
“The pictures do not do justice to the imagination and detail that has gone into this; said Melanie Hancock, Community Manager at the College. “All the hard work and dedication by staff and volunteers has truly paid off to produce such a vibrant and outstanding display piece. A staggering achievement and one that all who took part should be very proud of.”
