SUSSEX U3A NETWORK (SUN)

STUDY DAY PROGRAMME 2017 / 18

 

SUN is an organisation to which all Sussex U3A’s belong. Representatives from all Sussex U3A’s meet to discuss matters of interest and exchange ideas. It also provides contact with our regional representative on the Third Age Trust committee.

One of the important functions that SUN performs is to organise study days. These are presented by experts in their field and are normally run on Saturdays at various venues in the county.
