About 18 of our Interest Groups have now
moved online. Most of these use the Basic free package
but iU3A does have two Pro accounts if you need
enhanced functionality. The updated Zoom Guides are
also available through the News page here.
Advice and Support
iU3A Buddy/Support System: hopefully you'll know that iU3A have set up a 'Buddy' system for the duration of Covid19. Many members offered to help in one way or another. Thanks to all for volunteering. Luckily there were many more volunteering than members asking for support. We've now matched volunteers to requests for support on a postcode, local community, basis. If you have asked for support, then by now you should have been contacted by another member living local to you, to check on how you are and what support you require. If somehow you've missed this inititative and would like another member in your area to contact you please drop an email to Judith here or phone her.
Some other sources of information:
The latest advice from the UK government is here.

Volunteering - 'It All
Depends On Us'
Is this the new currency?
This may remind you of how it used to be, from the
March issue of The Oldie. 'Pick up the pace on
a digital walk [here]'
