| Margaret Davis. It is with deep regret that we have learned that Margaret passed away on 7th August. Her funeral was on 21st August. Our thoughts are with Geoff at this sad time. |
Welcome to Mansfield and District University of the Third Age – where retired and semi-retired people are never bored or lonely; making friends, finding things to do and learning together.
We offer Nottinghamshire seniors something to look forward to in retirement and a friendly way for you to enjoy it.
Members are part of an international organisation providing educational, cultural and social opportunities for people who are retired or not in full-time employment. So if you enjoy making new friends, learning new things and passing your knowledge on to others you'll be very welcome.
