Here are some of the groups that meet at the centre. The centre its self does not run many clubs so please use the contact details for each group, rather than the centre directly. Many of the groups are run by one of the local U3A (University Of the Third Age) groups who each have their own membership criteria, the group organiser will be able to help you. Blackwater U3A have asked us not to specify details of each group, the times and contact information can instead be found at their own web site

If you would like your group to be featured here, or need details changing, please email Duncan at or David at

The centre is run as a charity by a small group of volunteers plus the caretakers, booking officer and treasurer but we desperately need more people to help out on the committee as our numbers are dwindling. We hold our committee meetings on the second Thursday of each month except August, please contact any committee member or the booking officer to find out more or if you wish to come and meet us - we would be very glad to welcome you.
