In addition to our own events, members can attend larger meetings arranged by the Sussex U3A Network (SUN). Details of these can be found by using the SUN link on our Contacts page.

Dates for your Diary
Wed Nov 21st Pulborough Village Hall - 10.30 to 12 noon - Wednesday 21 November.
We will hear from Carole Groves who works for the Help for Heroes charity.

Come and learn more about what our injured military personnel gain through Help for Heroes. Apart from superb medical intervention, our military heroes are helped with regaining physical fitness, improving mental health and wellbeing, assistance with welfare and financial support, and help with finding a career.

There are Help for Heroes recovery centres at four locations across the country:
Phoenix House Recovery Centre, Catterick
Chavasse VC House Recovery Centre, Colchester
Tedworth House Recovery Centre, Tidworth
The Naval Service Recovery Centre at HMS Drake, Plymouth

This is one of our Open General Meetings and we would like to see as many of our members as possible at this interesting event. However, it is also free and open to non-members who, as well as being interested in hearing about Help for Heroes, might also be interested in finding out more about U3A in our area.

If you haven't already made a note of the date in your diary, please do it NOW!
Everybody is most welcome and we hope to see you there.
Social Events
Fri Nov 16th We have provisionally booked the Skittles hall at The Spur, Slindon for Arun Valley U3A to have lunch and a skittles session on Friday 16th November. We would be served lunch at 12.30pm and have use of the skittle alley until 3pm.

The cost will be £13.00 per head as long as we have 20 people. The pub will cater for fewer people subject to a minimum fee of £260. That could also be 13 people at £20 or 15 people at £17.35.

Skittles is a fun thing to do and easier than bowling because there are no gutters! No special footwear is needed either.

We need to know numbers by 2nd November, so please let Marion H know if you can come as soon as possible, using the contacts page.
Fri Dec 14th Advance notice of our Christmas Lunch which will be at the Sir Roger Tichborne, Loxwood Rd, Alfold Bars, near Loxwood
More details to follow later, but for now, please get the date into your diary.
