Abstract

On Tuesday afternoons at Countesthorpe Community College in Leicestershire, two dozen old people sit in groups amidst the noise and chaos of the activity area, where table tennis, the juke box and the coffee bar are in full swing. But the old people, members of the College's Tuesday Club, don't seem to mind at all. Some find a quiet corner to talk, others are engrossed in cards or dominoes or in watching the youngsters. Tea and cakes are served by solicitous domestic science students. It is an afternoon out, and what is lacking in comfort is compensated for by the vitality of the place.
