FROM novelty cake decorating to Zumba – a new programme of community courses is set to be launched at a town school.

Residents can sign up for the latest set of courses taking place at St Hild’s CE Secondary School, in King Oswy Drive, Hartlepool.

People of all ages and abilities are invited to sign up for the courses, which have proved extremely popular in the past.

Residents can get creative in the kitchen and learn how to style a cake at the novelty cake decorating classes, which run at the school on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6pm-8pm.

A dressmaking course is held on a Monday and Thursday at the same time while a decorative card making class takes place on a Monday from 6pm-8pm.

Budding photographers of all ages and abilities can take part in a new photography course which is held on a Thursday from 6pm-8pm.

Topics covered on the course include camera operations and techniques, portraits, landscapes and trick shots.

Courses are also getting underway for those who want to kick start the new year by improving their fitness.

A kettlebells class will take place in the school on a Wednesday from 6pm-8.30pm while the Zumba class is held on a Thursday from 7pm-8pm.

The courses are all organised and coordinated by school staff with the support of Hartlepool College of Further Education, Adult Education and Belle Vue Sports and Community Centre.

Chris Bradley, office manager at St Hild’s School, said: “We are offering a variety of courses which will hopefully appeal to residents who will want to come and take part.

“The courses we have organised in the past have always proved really popular and successful.

“It would be absolutely fantastic if we got a similar response this time around.”

To find out more about the courses and costs call the school before 5pm Monday-Friday on (01429) 273041.
