Wigtownshire U3A is a voluntary organisation for those no longer in full-time work, under the umbrella organisation of the Third Age Trust. It has been in existence since 2008, currently has 250 members who enjoy a range of activities from art to yoga, walking to philosophy, book clubs to textiles. We are in need of an IT expert who can help with a short term project which will involve:-
• initially identifying a suitable new host for Wigtownshire U3A website (www.wigtownshireu3a.org.uk)
• ensuring email facilities meet the needs of the organisation.
• researching upgrade options
Wigtownshire U3A does not have an official office, so the postholder would need to work from home but may be required to attend Committee meetings occasionally. While the current Corona crisis is on, the Committee are meeting via the Zoom platform.
People get together to share interests and meet sometimes once a month, sometimes more frequently - depending on the subject. For the £15 membership fee you are entitled to go along to all the monthly talks and join as many interest groups as you have time for. At the moment there are twenty-seven Interest Groups covering a wide range of subjects. You may well have a skill or interest not currently covered by any of our Interest Groups - come and share it with us! The possibilities are endless. Meetings are usually held during the day, so with winter approaching, there is no need to turn out in the dark. If you're thinking of joining us come along to one of our monthly meetings as a visitor and maybe take a couple of 'taster' sessions of group activities. The U3A is an ideal way to meet new people with similar interests. You might find that instead of having time on your hands, there aren't enough days in the week.
