Following the sad news of the closing of the Appleby Heritage Centre, in Appleby, Cumbria. The Oaklea Trust through its subsidiary, Right2Work, have been approached to work alongside the Heritage Centre with a view to offering alternative options for learners who are now without provision. Some of the activities will take place at the R2W Appleby Hub and we are working with Eden District Council to source alternative learning venues.
Quote from Clive Wigley CEO of Oaklea and R2W Director: “It is so sad to hear of the closure of the Heritage Centre and we will do all we can to find solutions for the learners that attended the Centre.”
The Heritage Centre is based on a site next to Appleby railway station on the Settle & Carlisle Railway -hence the use of the former Goods Shed and carriages.
We will provide further updates when appropriate.
