WELL done to Bob Welch for writing to the Journal to remind those of us in later life that there is something out there for us.

Three excellent places to start getting active and socialising are the Pensioners Link on Charles Street in Leigh, the University of the Third Age (U3A) based at Leigh Miners Welfare Institute on Twist Lane and Age UK Wigan Borough (Bright Days Project) – call 01942 615883 for details.

I am happily involved in these activities and can say without hesitation that they bring happiness, fulfilment and wellbeing to those of us who are not so young.
