Older people have enthusiastically embraced the world of Zoom

13 November, 2020

‘More than half of the iU3A’s 80+ interest groups are using Zoom’

• WITH another three weeks of the current lockdown to go, people who are no longer in full-time work are busy making new friends while enjoying the many activities of Islington U3A.

As older people, always interested in something new, we have enthusiastically embraced the world of Zoom.

In fact, more than half of the iU3A’s 80+ interest groups are using Zoom to “meet” regularly and to enjoy two talks each month, from the comfort of our own homes.

As soon as it’s possible we’ll also be out and about on walks, playing table tennis and petanque in Islington parks, and visiting cinemas and theatres. All for a membership fee of £15 for 2020/21.

Anyone retired or semi-retired is urged to find out more about what’s happening at www.islingtonu3a.org or to phone 07784 336219.

DEREK HARWOOD
Chair, Islington U3A
