Learn with loved ones this autumn

Merton Adult Education (MAE) is calling on residents to get involved in a range of free events at this year’s Family Learning Festival starting on 5 October.

Throughout October, family focused learning events are being run by Merton Adult Education. Interactive family activities are taking place in learning venues and libraries across the borough. From creating balloon rockets and family photography to jewellery making and learning sign language, there is an event to suit the interests of every family member at the annual festival. On Saturday 18 October there is a family Fun Day at Merton Adult Education where a whole afternoon of activities will be provided. To sign up, families can call Merton Adult Education on 020 8274 5222.

All Family Learning Festival events are free and offered to adult members of your family and your children. The adult member could be a parent, carer, grandparent, aunt, uncle or an adult brother or sister.

Cabinet member for education, Councillor Martin Whelton, said: “It is really fantastic that Merton Adult Education is holding a festival that encourages families to learn together and have fun. I hope families take advantage of the opportunities on offer by signing up and getting involved in the wide range of different activities and courses on offer.”
