A new world of learning and friendship

05 October 2022

If you’re keen to widen your horizons, explore new interests and meet like-minded people, there’s an online community waiting.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a world of online learning waiting to welcome you, to explore new hobbies and join like-minded peers in live wellness classes and at enlightening talks on subjects that have always piqued your curiosity?

All of this is now becoming possible within a secure online community that invites you to dip into a host of interesting sessions, get involved in activities or simply chat over a coffee when you feel like a break.

When we retire, we find ourselves busier than ever and the transition from a pressurised career, surrounded by work friends, to a less structured routine can leave us struggling to make time for exploring our interests and satisfying our curiosity. With this in mind, Saga has been working with trusted partners to allow a number of readers access to their online community where they can join inspiring lectures, perhaps try a little morning Tai Chi and find precious ‘me time’ in a friendly environment.

Since the pandemic, more of us have become used to video calls, so we are creating a community online for our readers to take part in activities and listen to talks across a wide range of topics – from health to finance and positive thinking to travel or simply meeting some of your fellow community members.

The online community works in the same way as popping into the local library to scan the noticeboard for clubs such as flower arranging, book reading, or watercolour painting, with the benefit of being able to log in and join the classes wherever you are.

Getting involved in our online learning community is convenient and easy. We are waiting for you whenever you want to join us: you can sit and listen, join in with the debate or share your story – whatever works for you.

You could also invite friends or relatives to join the same session, whether they’re just down the road or in another country, so that you can all experience the event live, together.

If this has sparked your interest and sounds like something you’d like to take advantage of, great news – we have agreed exclusive free trials for some of our readers.

Just click here to register your interest. We can’t wait to welcome you.
