Back to School

With the Shows past and the weather taking a turn for the worse the following Giddy Limit cartoon by Alex Leonard seems to sum up this time of year in Orkney.

No.207. The Orcadian 13th August 2009

As well as the anticipation of a new school term, there is also the joy of all those winter activities to look forward to - the  indoor projects and activities that have been neglected during the long summer days.

Part of the excitement is opening up the new guide to Community Learning Courses and deciding which new skill to tackle this year. From Archaeology to Yoga, Birdwatching to Welding, there are courses to suit every interest and ability.

The prospect of the increasingly dark winter days can only be brightened by the promise of getting together with other like-minded folk and taking part in a new activity. After all why should the bairns have all the fun - you're never to old, or young, to enjoy learning something new!

Pop in to the library and pick up your copy of the course guide and you'll be spoilt for choice. But don't delay too long in making your decision, as places can fill up quickly.
