For all our good intentions, the majority of us will not keep our New Year resolutions. So instead of making the same old resolutions, why not try learning a new skill or language, improving your career prospects or taking up a hobby this January. Whether you want to study part-time or full-time, there’s a variety of courses on offer to suit your needs and you don’t have to wait until September to start.

The residents, who were all over 85 years old, visited the College’s Zest restaurant in Station Road to take part in two interactive masterclasses, which saw the students demonstrate how to decorate cakes and festive biscuits along with some fancy napkin folding perfect for any Christmas dinner table. The residents even had the chance to have a go at the activities themselves, with a little help from the students.

The menu included such delights as Chicken Chasseur and Double Chocolate Cheesecake. Roxana Chirita, Activities... Read more
