The Gartholwg lifelong learning centre in Church village is a new building and a new concept in education .Teaching subjects that are usually outside normal educational institutions.
For example they run courses such as 'computers for kids'
For children aged 6-11 years , 'French for children' ages 5-11 and a drama academy for children also aged 5- 11.
There is in addition many courses for adults.
Under arts and crafts there is pottery, glass painting, and copper jewellery and many others. In other departments you can learn belly dancing ( if you are in to that! ) and Yoga, creative writing, cooking, sign language, Spanish, French and German. Basic photography, computing and many others
The building also has a fully equipped sound studio that you can hire with a qualified audio engineer for £25 an hour. Also in the building is housed the local public library with the free use of computers
This is only a brief outline of the activities that the centre provides
. There is a free car park quite often very full . But I have always managed to find a place.
.There are also other interesting activities at the centre For example on January 21 at 2pm Helen Charles the youngest survivor of a torpedoed world war two ship recounts her experiences' being rescued from the ship.
Finally there is no group that can replace ABBA, They were unique, but I am told the group 'BJORN BELIEF' come very close in simulation . They are performing at the centre on Friday 6 th February The bar is open at 7.30pm and after the performance there is a 70/80's disco That's one I will not miss!
