Senior members

Because it’s never too late to learn

Sage is targeted primarily at retired people who have time on their hands and are looking to meet with like-minded people, enjoying a variety of different social activities. It is based on the U3A model (University of the 3rd Age) which is a popular national programme, also targeted at retired people, offering a large variety of interesting activities and discussion groups.

Sage was first launched in January 2016 and is now in its 7th successful year with a membership of over 400.

Sage meets on Tuesday afternoons. Each week has a detailed plan of different activities that includes guest speakers, films, bridge and bridge for beginners, current affairs discussions, IT tuition, book club and more besides.

Building on the success of Sage, PrimeTime is a programme also targeted at our ‘senior’ members who represent around 37% of our total membership.

The focus of PrimeTime is to provide the social interaction for these members through a variety of different activities, carried out throughout the week.

The programme is currently under development and will ultimately lead to us providing a social hub for our senior members.
