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.

on 01444 484560 for these or you can download them from our website: www.sussexu3anetwork.org.uk.
