Realise Futures launches range of workshops at new Bury learning centre



Chance to learn new skills with courses at House at Nowton


Tuesday, November 17th 2015 - Social enterprise Realise Futures has launched a new learning centre in Bury St Edmunds called House at Nowton, at Nowton Park, and has lined up a comprehensive range of workshops for Christmas and the New Year


Realise Futures Learning and Development - which delivers 1,700 Ofsted graded Good adult learning courses in Suffolk to 8,000 people aged 19+ every year - has added a new venue to its learning centres spread across the county in Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Lowestoft, Beccles, Felixstowe and Newmarket.


Deborah Williams, Curriculum Manager said: "House at Nowton offers an inspirational setting in which to learn new skills, with a wonderfully picturesque and peaceful environment in its leafy surroundings.


"We have put together a great range of workshops which will hopefully appeal to everyone - from learning more about social media and how to use Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, to clearing clutter around the house, decorating with flowers, and learning about photography.


"House at Nowton is an inspirational place to learn, and we hope it will prove exactly the right environment for people to get the most out of the workshops and our expert tutors. We are also catering for children coming along with attendees, as some of the courses run over the Christmas and New Year school holiday period."
