About Groups

Corona Virus

National and u3a regulations change, sometimes at short notice. Group members should contact their group leader for details of the current status of their group.

Group leaders wishing to restart their groups should contact the GROUPS COORDINATOR.

Joining an Arun East Group

If you wish to enquire about a group please contact the GROUPS COORDINATOR.  Members please login and   contact the Group Leader who will give you further details and tell you whether or not there is a vacancy.  You may be offered a taster session.

Non-Attendance at u3a Groups

New groups are set up at the request of our members and when we are able to find a suitable group leader or leaders.  In order to run successful groups, our group leaders spend much time in preparation and research. In addition we often need to hire venues to hold the groups.  It is very disappointing when group members attend erratically or cease attending without any notice.  If a group does not meet your requirements or you are unable to attend, please ensure that the group leader is informed. It is U3A policy that each group is self-supporting, hence if numbers fall too low rents cannot be covered. For all group absences you should give prior notice to your group leader.

Arun East u3a Groups Absence and Waiting List policy

If  a group member is absent (other than medical or similar situations) for 6 consecutive meetings (4 for groups that meet fortnightly and 3 for groups that meet monthly) the individual will be informed that he/she is required to relinquish their place which will then be offered the first person on the waiting list.
