Enrolment and Payment of Fees
To book a place, students should fill in the form below or contact The Lymington Centre Reception directly before attending, as numbers are limited for some courses. This may be due to the limitations of seating in the available accommodation or because the lecturer has set a maximum class size . Course fees become payable at enrolment. This can be done via Reception or at the first class in the course.

Cheques should be made payable to “Lymington Community Association”. We are also able to accept payment by debit or credit card at Reception.
