Unfortunately we are still in lockdown but I am pleased to see that some of our groups have updated their knowledge of technology and joined Zoom! This has enabled several groups to contact each other and continue with learning or at least interacting with each other. We may be confined to home but we are never down and out!
Do contact your Group Leader to see if they are linking in to Zoom. There is help at hand if you need guidance in setting up the app.
