Mapperley social group goes from strength-to-strength

Bookmark

A Mapperley social club that brings retired and semi-retired people together to learn new skills and socialise has attracted over 100 members in just three months.

Mapperley and District University of the Third Age (U3A) members take part in educational, creative and leisure activities in the company of others. No qualifications are needed and none are given.

The first University of the Third Age was founded back in 1982 and is a self-help organisation.

The Mapperley and District branch began life in March 2016 when a launch meeting was held to see if there was sufficient interest to form a new U3A.
