Many third agers take into account whether there is a U3A nearby when relocating to a new area.

U3A is a great way to meet people with similar interests- share interests learning and activities in a relaxed environment.

Meg and Peter Hartnell were relocating to Marlborough to be near their daughter in Liverpool.

Peter said, “We explored the areas of Cheshire and North Wales. Remembering how easily we made new friends through the U3A where we were before, we accessed the internet and discovered that Chester and Flintshire both had U3As.

Flintshire U3A had several walking groups available to join who all met to start walks in or near Mold. Our decision was made!

On arrival our neighbours were amazed to find we knew no one in the area, one year later they couldn’t believe how many friends we had made in such a short time!

"We continue to attend the same activities plus new ones like learning Welsh!”
