Not many clubs teach sailing as the insurance is a lot more expensive. Things are also much more complicated.

Loads of clubs teach sailing! I work at 2 different ones, and know of many, many others.

Most will be registered training establishments with the RYA, so a visit there may help, though the RYA site is difficult to follow.

If you click on the clubs button on the main Y&Y site, it brings up a map of the UK. Zoom in, and there are a dozen or more clubs nearby. Many will do rya courses or teaching groups, surely. I'm far away from there, but maybe Nessa has bumped into people from the east region who work up there?

Try Snettisham. Thats not too far from you I'm guessing. I know their head instructor who would be happy to advise.

Update....
Been in contact with one of the two sailing clubs near me. One club has a member who is an instructor, so I will be giving him a call. Also, just by chance they are having an ''Open Day'' at the end of June so will be going to that, they said they have quite a few boats so I can try them out!! Also I could do a bit of crewing(?).
So its looking up
Thanks for everyones help/advice.

Crewing is a great way to meet people and find your feet around the club. I can see why singlehanded is popular from a convenience point of view but crewing can be a really useful way to gain some experience without getting overfaced out on your lonesome.
