As you might imagine we are working behind the scenes to keep much of our U3A ticking over during the present crisis. One service that we can offer immediately is our WhatsApp U3ACHAT line, sign up for this and you can get up to the minute advice, assistance and even several friendly ears just to listen!
As the membership base progresses and hopefully with due haste, we plan to introduce onto the service items such as broadcast events for many of our existing groups. This will lend itself well to things such as quizzes and current affairs topics, science programs and much more. All of these programs will be interactive, either by text or voice. Video inserts will also be used, as well as powerpoint and other presentations!
You can receive WhatsApp on your pc or MacBook but in eithercase you will need and existing copy of the app on your smartphone. Without this the program will not run.
To join this service see your Newsemail dated 22 March or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Another way of getting on this service is to send your name and your mobile telephone number in a reply to this email.
At the current time, this service can only take up to 250 members, so don’t delay.
We will be launching a Skype service for voice communication in the coming days.
All the very best
Deputy Chair West Wilts U3A
