Threat to Adult Arts Education

Students at Bromley Adult Education College report that Adult Education is changing in response to the Council's funding crisis. The emphasis will be more on the disadvantaged and unemployed, and less on leisure and recreational courses. Many Arts courses are seen in the latter group and the Widmore Centre may close altogether. There is, inevitably, to be public "consultation" via a web survey.

FREE website for every BAS member who need one

Dear BAS members,
I intend to build, for FREE (in my available time), a website like this: , for every BAS member that need one.
For a small amount can be bought (not from me) a domain name like this:, for who needs a custom domain name.
I will accept any kind of symbolic support (travel expenses etc.), if this it's possible, but this is not mandatory.<
