SUN (SUSSEX U3A NETWORK) STUDY DAYS

The start and finish times of study days vary depending on where these are being held.

Application forms are usually available 6 weeks before each Study Day. When available they can be obtained by clicking on the link below to download. They can also be downloaded from the SUN web site at http://www.sussexu3anetwork.org.uk.

PLEASE NOTE: All applications must be sent to the Study Day Administrator and NOT TO THE VENUE.

Car sharing for study days

If you are likely to be driving to a Study Day it would be enormously helpful if you would give a lift to another member who does not have transport. It would also help cover your costs as car sharers usually help to pay for petrol. Our SUN representative Judith has offered to keep a list of members who are willing/able to give a lift to a specific study day and to pass this information on to any member who is in need of transport.

So IF YOU ARE DRIVING TO A STUDY DAY and are willing/able to give a lift(s) would you contact Judith and advise her which Study Day you are attending giving her your email address and or telephone number so that she can pass it on to anyone who is trying to find a lift. You can contact Judith by email using the bluebird contact box on this page.

If you require a lift please contact Judith by email or telephone so that she can advise you if any lifts are available. It will then be up to you to make contact with the driver.

Please note that Judith is only offering to provide information about members who have advised her that they are willing to offer a lift – she is not able to actually arrange lifts – the person needing the lift will need to contact the prospective driver themselves
