U3A a great social outlet
Dear Editor, Regarding coverage of U3A in the October 12th Pastoral Times, first thank you.
For the last two years I have been going to Intereach for two U3A classes, and I must say I highly recommend it for men and women who want to get out socially and keep the mind active.
After all, taking part in a word game for instance would be more sociable than filling in a crossword at home.
We do have a discussion group which keeps away from political and religious issues that also lets us share one another’s ideas with the up to date topics discussed challenge enough.
I think we all need to get out, men especially.
So don’t hang back, even if you may think you know it all.
Men and women need to develop mentally even as we age, and I think that health benefits seem to go with an active mind.
I understand that anyone joining U3A can have a new activity with like-minded people, if someone can be found to lead.
