Arun West

Welcome

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR

A very warm welcome to Arun West u3a’s website.

Arun West u3a was formed in 2013 on the division of Arun u3a into three separate u3as (the others being Littlehampton and Arun East). The 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.

We’re a lively and friendly organization offering a wide range of learning, creative and leisure groups for the retired and semi-retired. Anyone who is no longer in full time employment is eligible to join. It’s a good way to meet people and make new friends – learn, laugh, live.

We have a range of groups you can join, covering everything from History through arts, music, walks, discussions and table tennis to games and languages. There are monthly meetings with an interesting talk and coffee mornings for a chance to meet people and make new friends

Due to the current restrictions we are now, realistically, only able to “meet” online. A number of groups are keeping in touch with each other using technology and we now have an Arun West u3a Facebook presence. We are also offering a monthly talk via Zoom- details of which will be circulated to the membership. Now that the vaccine programme is well under way, hopefully we may be able to gather in person again before too long.

Our monthly talks normally take place in Yapton Village Hall on the second Wednesday of each month at 2pm. Currently they are taking place on Zoom. See Events for more information.

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.
