Welcome to our website

Who are we? People who live in the Buckinghamshire villages of Bourne End, Wooburn Green, Flackwell Heath and the nearby locality, who are no longer in full-time work, and who love the chance to ‘Learn, Love, Live’ (our motto) together. Since our launch in 2018 we now have more than 450 members.

What do we do? We set up our own small interest groups, and also meet for monthly talks as well as trips and other activities. Some 50 interest groups vary from Italian to Golf, Lace Making to Non-Fiction Reading, Bird Watching to Mah-Jong. (See the full list here.) Join in as much or as little as you like - all for £16 a year.
