Eastbourne and Wealden U3A's main topic was ‘The lost villages of Arlington, Exceat and Northeye.

The Sun Day was organized by Sun on behalf of U3A groups in Sussex, and it was attended by U3A members from across Sussex, their friends, their families and the general public.

Did you go to SUN Day 2014? Everyone said it was a huge success - a chance to see the talents of those who had participated in the South Downs Project ... for U3As to display other activities which related to Sussex ... and to have some fun and entertainment as well. It was estimated that between 500 and 600 people attended.

We are also going to have an ‘inhouse’ meeting on 2nd September 2014 with the emphasis being on the work that our U3A has done on the project.

The April 2014 (1) - Exceat The Commemorative Stone at Exceat marks the site of the village church which disappeared more than 500 years ago. As part of the Sun project we are campaigning for the stone to be restored in its centenery year. It was placed on this spot in 1913.
