These are strange and difficult times we are living through at the moment and it is very important that we stay safe and follow the Government guide lines.
We may not be in contact with our family, friends or neighbours. We hope that the information on this page may help you stay in touch with some or all of them.
However if you are feeling alone, just need someone to talk to or if you are have a problem you are struggling with we are happy to be there to help you. After all that is one the main reasons for the existence of U3A – To be there for each other.
Please feel free to email Ian Gravenell the Social Secretary and we will try to find the right people to help you. Please don’t go through this alone we are here to help.
It's great to see people again and to catch up with how everyone was coping with the lockdown. Modern technology allows us to use our mobile phones, tablets or laptop/desktop computers to see people as well as talk to them.
Video conferencing seems to be everywhere. People working from home, television reports on our screens offering glimpses of offices, spare bedrooms or any set of bookcases. Even the Archbishop of Canterbury gave his Easter address from his kitchen.
There are a number of apps you can use. The more familiar ones, which you may already use for phone calls or messages, will be Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, Messenger and less familiar ones like Zoom, Teams, House Party, etc. So give it a try!
If you need help to use any video conferencing software email Peter Curbishley the Website Editor who will put you in touch with someone from our Technology group, who may be able to help you.
