Cryptic Crossword Puzzle for U.K. members?

I've been doing the AARP "Easy" Cryptic for a few years now and I don't understand why the clues seem to be targeting a British membership.  Every puzzle contains a few clues that only a U.K. audience would be more familiar with than an American audience.  Quick example:  in this past Friday's puzzle, the answer "hare" was clued by the word run.  To hare in the U.K. apparently means to run.  Another from that day:  A geographical anagram clue produced the city of Gloucester.  This happens all the time.  British towns, British rivers, British slang, etc...  How many U.K. members of AARP are there?
