We are so lucky that Bill loves this area, because it means that Higham can share the talents of one of our contry's most experienced adult educators. Following on from his extenisve career in Higher education, Bill brings his love of literature for anyone who wishes to share in the richness and joy it can bring to life.
To be able to offer courses led by such a respected luminary in the field of lifelong learning is an honour for lil' ol' Higham - to have someone like Bill believing in what we strive to do means so much.
Bill's courses are for anyone interested in sharing a love of poetry and literature, whether beginner or experienced. Texts are usually provided and time is spent on shared discussion about them as part of the enjoyable learning process.
