There is something for everyone on offer through the East Berkshire Community Learning and Skills Service.

The service offers part-time courses for adults aged 19 and over on everything from Bollywood dancing to basic car maintenance.

Visitors to Maidenhead Town Hall in St Ives Road on Saturday got to meet tutors on some of the courses, have a go at some activities and find out more about what they involved.

Georgina Hayward, neighbourhood learning coordinator, said: "We have had loads of people in interested in all the different courses we offer - everything from Bollywood dancing and belly dancing to first aid, cupcake decorating and flower arranging."

Some courses may be a one day workshop, some a short five week introduction others running for 10 weeks.

Courses like an introduction to IT help people who may have never used a computer before or need a confidence boost in using one, while more advanced courses lead to a qualification.

Georgina added: "They might want to do something for leisure and likewise other people want to come and get a qualification and new skills for a job.

"We are very interested in making sure we are offering courses which allow people to move on to the next step."
