Blackwater Valley U3A has a general meeting on the third Thursday of each month.  See the Speakers page for a list of these meetings and the speakers attending. Meetings are held in the Hawley Memorial Hall in Hawley Lane, Blackwater and start promptly at 2.00 pm.  After the meetings which usually last about 1½ hours, there will be  an opportunity to talk to Officers, Co-ordinators and other members. There is a small charge of £1 to cover tea and refreshments.

The Blackwater Valley U3A group is affiliated with the Yateley groups, meaning members can participate in activities at both branches.
