Welcome To Our Website
Welcome to the Blackwater and Hawley Town Council website. We have an information point at the Blackwater Centre, situated by the Blackwater Bridge on the A30 London Road. We are in Hampshire, close to the Surrey and Berkshire county boundary. You can phone, walk-in or contact us on-line and we will provide you with information or point you in the right direction. We also manage the Hawley Cemetery.
At the Hawley Green we have community leisure facilities used by a variety of local groups including mother and toddler groups, exercise, dance and diet clubs, martial arts groups, a bridge club, yoga, pilates and a cardiac re-habilitation group, to name but a few.
The community leisure halls are available for hire on a one off or on a regular basis and are licensed for function hire. We have squash courts and a small gym, sports pitches, an outdoor floodlit hard court amenity for netball and football. You can also hire our facilities including squash on a “phone, pay and play” basis. Telephone 01276 35411 for details.
We have a children’s play area on the Hawley Green, which also provides the venue for the annual Hawley Fayre on the second Saturday in July each year.
The Hawley Bowling Club manage the outdoor amenity at the leisure complex and the Disabled Action Self Help group (Dash) has a facility there too. The Scouts, Cubs, Brownies and Guides also meet regularly on site.
At the nearby Hawley Meadows and Shepherd Meadows on the Blackwater River, there are recreational areas for walking and fishing. The Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership maintains these nature and recreational areas.
By providing, maintaining, supporting and encouraging leisure and recreational participation we aim to contribute in a positive way to the health and well being of the local community.
