Charity closes but this site continues

“Learning Never Stops” was the charity developed by former staff and governors after Essex County Council closed our adult college at Grey Friars. We ran activities to encourage lifelong learning, including festivals, a website listing local opportunities and a Facebook page “Colchester, Learning Town”. When it ran short of funds and support, the charity attempted to persuade the Borough and local post-school educational providers to continue the services, but to no avail. The website and Facebook page have now closed, but this site and its accompanying Facebook page continues as there is still much interest in the iconic Grey Friars site, which has meant so much to generations of local people. Please spread the word and share experiences and knowledge to keep the ‘Grey Friars spirit’ alive.
