Goostrey Guild was founded in January 2009 following the demise of Keele University’s extra-mural activities. The principal aim of the Guild is to provide short adult education learning opportunities in the village. Varied autumn and spring term programmes are arranged, augmented by some local visits.
The Guild operates as an independent organisation, which meets on Wednesday mornings in Goostrey Village Hall lounge for a two-hour session between 10am and 12 noon. The format for each session is divided into two approximately fifty-minute periods separated by a 20 minute coffee break. Some thirty members usually attend these meetings and enjoy engaging in lively discussions.
