Being retired may mean having more time to do the things have always been wanted to. In the UK, there are a range of opportunities people enjoy in their retirement,such as meeting friends in pubs, doing community activities,travelling with family or friends,learning for fun or keeping on working.
Maybe it is the dream of millions -downing tools or abandoning the keyboard for a life of relaxation and enjoyment. But not everyone who reaches state pension age in the UK actually retires. Whether for economic reasons, or the desire to stay in employment, many continue to earn a wage.
According to the latest Office for National Statistics figures, for December 2017 to February 2018, just under 1.2 million people over the age of 65 were in work – or 10.2% of the entire age group.
