Having a chatter – getting our clubs online
Our Clubs & Activities Coordinator, Naomi Towns, has been busy setting up virtual clubs for our members to continue to meet together and enjoy different activities over the phone & over video calls.
We have several new virtual groups planned over the next couple of months, so if you haven’t yet joined us then perhaps one of these might be for you. They may be accessed by phone as well as the internet, so if you have any questions about joining, please do call us on 01243 828555.
Read below the wonderful story from Member and Volunteer Shirley on how she got started with our virtual clubs.
I have been running the Kitchen Klub for over ten years now and we have always enjoyed our kitchen get togethers. Our last meeting was in March last year, due obviously to the pandemic. During the summer I kept in touch with all our members by phone.
Then in September, Naomi was able to arrange a video call for us and we were able to chatter as if we were all together.
It was great fun – We now have a call every month.
Naomi has organised several different group meetings on Zoom, and it’s easy to join. Naomi sends you a link through your email and you just follow the instructions that come up on the screen. Even if you can’t use Zoom online, you can still take part through the phone.
I now belong to five or six groups, including Reading Group, Tec Group, monthly Quiz, Talks, Macular Society , as well as attending the 4SIGHT AGM.
With the lockdown , and being told to stay at home, it is great to meet and talk to new people. Naomi is a whiz and will sort out any problems you may encounter.
I would recommend anyone to give it a try.Shirley
