You will be delighted to hear that we still have a provisional booking for our regular Christmas lunch at Chichester College on Wednesday, 16th December at 12 noon, on the assumption that the current lockdown will be cancelled prior to that date. If the Lunch is unable to take place due to Government restrictions any money paid will be refunded. The price is £18 per person, to include a 3-course meal and coffee. You may choose a starter, main and dessert. You order and pay for drinks at the table, but please note that coffee is included in the price.

Due to COVID the booking arrangements are different this year. The College has allocated two rooms to us, one room has 6 tables for a maximum of 6 people each, and the other room has 5 tables for a maximum of 5 people each. The College is, of course, conforming to the Government regulations and therefore, as current regulations stand, there can be no mingling between tables and masks will have to be worn when entering and leaving the premises and when visiting the toilets. All orders for drinks will be taken by the staff.
The College has asked for bookings to be made directly with them by one person from each table, and the choice of menu and payment must be made at the time of booking. If you are booking for fewer than 4 people please let us or the College know if you are willing to share a table with other U3A members.
If you would like to join the Christmas lunch, please contact your friends (who must be members of the Chichester U3A) up to a maximum of 6 to share your table. Ask them to choose from the menu and ask them to pay you in order that you can make a single payment for your table to Chichester College.
You should contact Nicola Simpson at the College by email to give her your menu list and to arrange payment.
