Hello Tech & Tea family!
As we are sure you're all aware, we are currently living in unprecedented times. Over the past few weeks, we have been transitioning into a lockdown with physical distancing and self-isolation impacting many aspects of our lives.
Because of this, we have taken the decision to postpone Tech & Tea events indefinitely. However, we will monitor the situation closely, and restart our events as soon as it is safe for us to do so. The health of our attendees, volunteers and organisers is our top priority.
This time has showed us more than ever the importance that technology now plays in our lives. Many of us are now only communicating with our families through video or phone calls, text messages, or through social media. Online shopping is becoming a necessity for many people who cannot leave their homes. Plus, who would have thought that we could help save lives by staying at home, sitting on the sofa, watching TV!
With this in mind, we want to try to keep providing you with resources and guidance to help make life a little easier. This is why we're launching our Tech To Connect Hub, to give you everything you need to stay safe, connected and healthy during this time.
If there are any specific topics you'd like support with during this time, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll then add it to the Tech to Connect Hub, and send out weekly emails with all our updates and highlights from each week. We'll do our best to help everyone that we can, and build a mountain of resources to help with all your technology queries. You can also access all our Tech Talks from previous events in our Tech Talk library.
We'd also like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone that is working or volunteering for the NHS. This is an incredibly difficult time for so many people, and we are so incredibly grateful for everyone that is pulling together to fight this virus. Finally, we would like to say a massive thank you to every single person who is following the self isolation guidelines. By staying at home, we can help save lives.
Stay Safe. Stay at Home. Save Lives.
Sending love to you all and we hope to see you again soon,
The CommuniTech Team
