PLACES are still available on three of the four local and natural history courses being run in Kirklees Museums by the Workers’ Education Association, starting this month.
All the courses run for 10 weeks and weekly sessions are from 2pm to 4pm.
On Mondays, at Tolson Museum, Wakefield Road, Huddersfield, starting on January 10, is ‘Climate Change and the Rock Record’. It will look at how the rock record shows how climate has changed in the past and how this may predict climate change in the short and long term future.
On Wednesdays, starting January 12, at Dewsbury Museum, Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury, is ‘Sources for the History of Dewsbury’ with tutor Alan Petford.
Also running on Wednesdays and starting on January 19 is ‘Explore Batley’s History’ at Bagshaw Museum, Wilton Park, Batley.
Each course costs £60 but people in receipt of Job Seeker’s Allowance, Pension Guarantee Credit, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit and some other income-related benefits pay only a £3 administration fee.
