Update from our Chairperson Barbara McAllister
Published on 02/09/2021

We hope you all have had a safe and pleasant summer? We welcome you back to our autumn term of interesting and stimulating talks and workshops.

Our first Zoom talk will be given on Tuesday 7th September at 11 am. by Prof Maria Chester on the Glamorous French Belle Epoque.

The committee has decided to continue zooming for health and safety reasons until January 2022 when we will review the health situation again.

Our AGM will be held on 16th November and we would be very pleased if members would offer their services to join the steering committee and subcommittees by that date. Our organisation depends on members sharing their skills and talents to perpetuate a dynamic U3A.

With many thanks for your support and encouragement during the past few difficult months.

Age Action 'Getting Started Keep In Touch (KIT)'
Published on 21/05/2021

Getting Started KIT

As part of Age Action's Getting Started digital umbrella we developed the Keep In Touch (KIT) in response to COVID-19.

This remote national learning initiative helps older people improve their digital literacy skills, so they are more connected, informed and supported specifically during periods of social distancing.

Using our specially developed curriculum of eight How to... guides we are offering up to five hours tutoring, by phone, to anyone who feels that they need support with using their smart device. Covering topics like how to set up an email, how to download an app, and how to use video to see your loved ones, learners will be matched with a volunteer tutor who will cover the topics they choose, at their pace. We will also send learners a 40-page learning booklet with lots of smart images to help with tutoring sessions.

For further information about Getting Started KIT remote tutoring classes, please call:
