WEST Dunbartonshire Council has organised a series of free courses for Dumbarton and the Vale residents looking to learn new skills.

The Working4U Adult Learning department is launching the programme the week beginning August 23 and it will last until at least December.

The line-up includes sociology, British sign language, gardening, creative writing, counselling, social sciences, and wellbeing.

The classes will be online for the time being and details of dates and times can be found on the council’s website.
