Welcome to BLACKWATER U3A [Maldon]

PLEASE NOTE - IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19, CORONAVIRUS

WE WILL BE POSTING UPDATES TO THIS SITE TO LET ALL MEMBERS KNOW ABOUT CHANGES, AND WILL BE EMAILING MEMBERS ABOUT DEVELOPMENTS.

Wednesday January 6th Meeting by Zoom.
The first online meeting was a great success with over 60 peole listening in. Everyone seemed very happy to participate and the talk by Alan Pamphilon entitled ‘The history of Chelmsford High St., 1860 to 1960' was fascinating.
Alan showed a series of photographs on a split screen with time for questions. There was an interesting exchange of reminiscences about pop groups playing in Chelmsford during the 1960s. BU3a members could recall Lindisfarne, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and one past chairman remembered being removed from the stage!
A big thank you to all the people who organised it. Look here for news of the next one.

Vaccine scam
Don't be tricked by anyone asking for payment for the Covid vaccine!

Readers of this site are advised to click the link to our Latest Newsletter which holds the information about our groups and all other Blackwater U3A activities.

We are a friendly U3A group of about 240 members that meet in Maldon, Essex, UK. We hold a regular monthly meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at the West Maldon Community Centre, usually with a guest speaker. Each month, there is a lively programme of meetings, activities and visits coordinated by over thirty different interest groups. Any member can start a new interest group, so it's a great place to share your knowledge and experience with others.

Our U3A was formed in 2004, and is one of four groups in the Maldon area. Maldon U3A instigated the opening of the Blackwater U3A, and then, in turn, we kick-started both the Heybridge U3A in 2009 and the Limebrook U3A in 2011. These local developments reflect the growth of U3A groups nationally.

Beyond lockdown report
Chair of the Third Age Trust, Ian McCannah, has created a report based from U3A members' thoughts on how the U3A movement can move forward post lockdown.
