Who are we?

We are a local charity organisation in Ravenshead village in Nottinghamshire that caters for active people from all walks of life - mostly no longer in full time employment or in business.

Our prime purpose is to encourage lifetime learning and participation in informal, fun, enjoyable activities and interests across a wide range of topics, pursuits and pastimes.

You will meet people who want to learn new things, keep active, share interests, enjoy socialising and making friends.

As we like to say: Learn, Laugh and Live!
