Holbrook Student Group



Updated:  23 August 2018

News and Events - 2018



We held the AGM for the WEA Holbrook Branch on 6th March 2018 and decided to continue with WEA activities in Holbrook through becoming a Student Group. This is a more informal arrangement than a Branch, run by a team of volunteers with the administration of the Group being organised centrally and by the local WEA Office in Derby.


We currently have 11 Student Group Volunteers - athough it would be good to have more Holbrook residents to maintain a local focus.  Please contact the Group via if you are interested in helping - you can commit as much or little time as you wish.  We are keen to put on events and courses that appeal to a variety of adult age groups.
