Welcome to BLACKWATER U3A [Maldon]
PLEASE NOTE - IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19, CORONAVIRUS
Following the Government announcement on Monday 16.3.2020, by which we have ALL been told to avoid unnecessary social contact, the monthly meetings are cancelled until further notice. Group meetings are also suspended. The AGM is now planned for 5th August 2020.
WE WILL BE POSTING UPDATES TO THIS SITE TO LET ALL MEMBERS KNOW ABOUT CHANGES, AND WILL BE EMAILING MEMBERS ABOUT DEVELOPMENTS.
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.
Our AGM is normally held during the May meeting, but this year, due to the circumstances, it is postponed to 5th August 2020. Following the presentation of annual reports from the Chairman and Treasurer, new Committee members are elected. It is a well-established principle that committee members will normally serve for no more than three years; this helps to ensure that the committee remains enthusiastic and innovative.
Without volunteers to undertake planning and regular committee work, our U3A will grind to a halt.Please consider putting yourself forward.
