The University of the Third Age caters for retired and semi-retired members of the community, offering lifelong learning in a relaxed, social environment, thus encouraging a healthy mind, body and spirit.
Kempsey Macleay Valley University of the Third Age (KMVU3A) is offering 30 courses in Kempsey and South West Rocks for eight weeks from February 1 to March 26.
"On offer are old favourites such as exercise based classes including meanders, yoga, canoeing, table tennis, shibashi, gardening and stretch and balance and classes to stretch our brains and creativity," KMVU3A secretary Fran Tarbox said.
Other courses offered will include card making, French, films, novel adventures, short stories, drumming and ukulele.
"A course called My Journey will be offered in three modules covering topics related to living well whilst keeping in mind our lives will ultimately end," Fran said.
