A very warm welcome to the website of Arun West U3A.
So, what is the U3A? You can find as many definitions as there are members, over 350,000 in the UK, because to each member there are unique aspects that make membership so rewarding. So, let's start with basic principles; if you have left full-time employment, you are eligible to join. There is no age bar. Beyond that, members pool their skills, passions and interests to share them with others. Thus cyclists and walkers pool their knowledge of the area to plan routes, linguists meet to hone their conversational skills, musicians learn to appreciate or perform music of their choice. The details of all the groups in Arun West and our network partner, Littlehampton U3A, can be found by clicking on 'Groups'. Click on the group name for pics and further details.
Arun West U3A serves the villages situated between Bognor Regis and Littlehampton; that is Elmer, Felpham, Middleton on Sea, Barnham, Eastergate, Westergate, Walberton, Yapton, Ford and Clymping.
Our monthly talks take place in Yapton Village Hall on the second Wednesday of each month at 2pm. See Events for more information. There are also speaker meetings in Littlehampton.
A coffee morning is held in Felpham on the first Thursday of the month and a second Coffee Morning in Eastergate takes place on the 3rd Monday of each month.
At each coffee morning we have a fun quiz and a sales table which supports a local charity.
