Urban sketching, crown green bowling and a history walk were among the taster sessions held by Wigan u3a - formerly known as the University of the Third Age.

They were held to mark u3a Day, to show people what the organisation is all about and encourage them to get involved.

Wigan u3a has a range of interest groups and organises trips for people looking to continue learning and fill their time during retirement.
