Gaywood Community Centre hosted King’s Lynn’s u3a’s open morning where residents could get a taste of a variety of activities on offer and sign up as a member. Lynn’s u3a (University of the Third Age) is one of many across the country open to those who are no longer in full time work or raising a family and has around 450 local members. These members are able to choose to participate in a number of activities. Chair of Lynn’s u3a John Small spoke of the success of the open morning.

He said: “Visitors liked what was on offer and 20 signed up as members on the day.” Interest groups meet once a month and guest speakers often come along to these meetings. Members and visitors could talk to representatives of many groups to see what is available. Groups present included walks, croquet, pickle ball, Italian, evening meals, photography and many more. People can join the u3a by filling out an application form available on their website. A membership costs £15 a year and gives you access to join more than 70 different groups.
