From Chairman of Worthing U3A
Worthing is on the South Coast of England in West Sussex and has a population of just over 100,000. A few miles inland of Worthing lies the South Downs National Park. The South Coast is popular with retirees, and therefore local U3As have no problem in attracting members.

U3A Membership - Having been established now for 25 years (we celebrate this anniversary 2017-18), we have a membership of 700. Our monthly meetings, with a speaker, are as popular as our Christmas and mid-summer parties. We are fortunate to be able to draw on ‘home grown’ entertainment provided by our very own Orchestra, Ukulele band and Choir.

Interest Groups - We have nearly 70 Interest groups and activities, from the more physically active pursuits (eg, Yoga, Rambling) to the cerebral (Languages, Philosophy, Music Appreciation), as well as social groups (eg, Lunch Group). In reality, all our groups include a strong social element, since the U3A movement encourages learning in a friendly and social environment. All of our meetings, whether in private homes or hired venues, involve social interaction and making new friends.

Website - Our website can be found at https://u3asites.org.uk/worthing, where full up-to-date details of our groups and activities are regularly posted.
