Palmers Green & Southgate

Discussion

The Discussion group is held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 10am at the same venue.

A programme of six months is compiled by the members, and the one who suggests a subject is the chair for that meeting. A short introduction is given and then the group take up the discussion.

We have very lively discussions on a great variety of subjects.

Alan led the November duscussion which was about adult education in all its forms. He outlined the spread of free adult education until about 1980. After that there have been numerous cuts. Currently there is very litle left. Vocational courses have fared a little better. U3A should not be seen as an equivalent. We all felt that people are poorer for the dearth of the many courses that used to be available - free or costing a small amount.
