This noticeboard is intended to be for u3a matters which may affect, or be of interest to our members such as group or other notices. You can submit a request for a notice to be placed here by using the link to Website Support on the Contacts Page.
New website domain name
As part of our work on the website we have procured the domain name wymondhamu3a.org.uk which is easy to remember and points to this website for now but will allow us more flexibility in the future to develop a different website if we so choose.
This also enables members to simplify email contact with any of the volunteers looking after various things, so you don't need to know their name or email address as you can now simply place the appropriate prefix in front of wymondhamu3a.org.uk as shown in the following examples and your email will be forwarded to the correct person.
chair@ compliance@ events@ groups@ it@ membership@ newsletter@ secretary@ speakers@ treasurer@ web@
The other advantage of this is that we can publish these emails in notices and literature without revealing personal addresses. All mail through these addresses can also be filtered for spam and be passed to the new volunteer as and when they change or move on.
The Contacts form can still be used as before and will reach the right person.

3. South Norfolk Help Hub : What is the Help Hub?
Everybody needs a bit of extra support from time to time. The Help Hub is about making sure people get help as soon as possible if they begin to experience difficulties. Getting help early can stop problems from getting worse. It might be only a small problem, like a broken washing machine or feeling a little isolated, but if it’s difficult to find a solution straight away a small problem can grow and lead to more worries. The Help Hub is a partnership between organisations that support people in South Norfolk and can offer practical support, advice and guidance to get you back on track.
