Stoke Lodge Saved

Accountants. Where would we be without them?

One minute they're filing your small business tax returns for you, the next they're finding £160,000 that Bristol City Council that didn't know they had two weeks ago.

The result of this financial wizardry (which you will be enlightened to learn was wrought according to James Barlow through a decision to "delete provision for VAT changes, in the light of the latest proposals from HMRC") is that the threatened cuts to Bristol's adult education service have been lifted.


For north Bristol residents that means that Stoke Lodge is now safe and that the threat of closure - reported previously on Trym Tales - is now removed.

Perhaps readers of Trym Tales might like to celebrate this fine piece of news by signing up for a bit of adult education themselves at the now-safe Stoke Lodge. The Introduction to the Minoan Civilisation and Czech Taster Day look like they might be of interest.

The full list of adult education courses in Bristol this year can be viewed here.
