Westminster Council is advertising for Hula Hoop tutors and Ukrainian Egg Decoration teachers, paying £24.63 per hour, to work at the Westminster Adult Education Service.
Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said;
“At first I thought it was an April Fool. I really had not realised there was such a pressing need for hula hoop tutors or Ukrainian Egg Decorators. I reckon that this will be news to many residents, too. I would be interested to know the demand for these courses. How many people are signed up and how much do they pay per session? I suspect that Egg Decoration requires more skill than hula hooping. I would be interested to know how long a hula hoop courses lasts for and how much it would cost someone to become ‘proficient’ in hula hooping? I look forward to next year’s courses – perhaps there will be people queuing up for courses in tiddlywinks and shove ha’penny?”
