St John's Bowling Club is a flat green bowling club with six rinks founded in 1936, with a current membership of 73; 34 Ladies and 39 Men. The club is affiliated to Sussex County Bowls and is an Associate member of Bowls England.
It is situated in The Helen Garden high on the seafront, two kilometers west of Eastbourne Pier and just yards from the spectacular chalk cliffs. It is a short distance from the world famous beauty spot, Beachy Head. The glorious views from the green, out across the English Channel, are arguably the best from any bowling green in the UK. If you want "bowls with a view" then St John's is the club for you.

M.O.M.A (Mothers of Meads Association) is a free group run by mothers in Meads.
The aim of our group is to provide an opportunity to meet other Mums in the Meads area and for our children to grow up with friends in the Village.
We regularly meet up with our babies, toddlers and/or older children for a coffee and chat or sometimes just the adults will meet for an evening.
Typical events may include coffee mornings, toddler mornings, ‘bring a dish nights’, quiz nights at the Ship, trips to the cinema/theatre, pamper nights, wine tasting and nights out for Mums (and sometimes Dads).
So, if you would like to join us, please feel free to join our Facebook Page or telephone Tracy on 07868 017020.

EASTBOURNE MEADS U3A was formed in 1993. We aim to help all those who are no longer in work and want to continue studying and maintaining an active mind in the company of like minded people.
Our branch of U3A is very active and offers a warm and friendly welcome to new members.
We are an organisation in which members run classes for the benefit of their fellow members. We support a wide range of interests and members pursue their learning not for qualifications but for fun and interest.
We are based for our monthly meetings in Victoria Baptist Church Hall, Eldon Road, Eastbourne but most of the group sessions are held in group members premises.
Please see website for more details.
Supported by a network of volunteers, Contact the Elderly organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people aged 75 and over, who live alone, offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.
We currently have three volunteer-led tea party groups in Eastbourne creating a warm, friendly welcome to older people in the town who might otherwise struggle to get out and about and make new friends.
We are seeking more volunteer drivers to pick up and accompany our older guests to the tea parties. The commitment is just one Sunday afternoon a month. Contact Julia Rivas on 01273 805451 for more information or visit our website; www.contact-the-elderly.org.uk
