Thank you to everyone who as been involved in the activities around the region for this the 20th year of Adult Learners' Week!
Events are still taking place across the region, so please visit the Adult Learners' Week online events calendar to see what's happening in your area.
Winners and nominees of this years' awards attended the South West Regional Adult Learners' Week Awards Ceremony, held at Ashton Court Mansion in Bristol on 19 May 2011.
The evening was incredibly inspirational and memorable and made even more so by our guest celebrity, Diane Louise Jordan, who presented the winners and nominees with their certificates. The Rt. Honourable. The Lord Mayor of Bristol, Councillor Geoff Gollop officially opened the ceremony and guests enjoyed a sit down meal before the awards were presented. South West winners of previous years' awards were also in attendance and were delighted to be able to speak about what they have done since winning and also what the award meant to them.
Congratulations to all the South West winners and nominees on your achievements and thank you for sharing your learning journeys with us.
