Last home-grown prospectus – 20 years ago!

It’s two decades since the last prospectus was issued under local management for Grey Friars as an adult college. the following year County Hall took charge of all publicity for adult education across the county and standardised all distribution. This was a blow for Colchester, as it had always distributed locally-relevant information ever since being established under the Borough itself in the 1960s. We also show below some of the staff who were responsible for planning and teaching the curriculum in the 1990s to 2000s. The college was finally re-organised in 2005 and closed in 2007 when all adult learning was centralised under County Hall management, Grey Friars becoming a 5* hotel. All below are fondly remembered, much missed – how helpful they would be in helping the community cope with the present issues in society!
