Making the Website more user-friendly

We know that it's difficult for members to find their way around the website and to find the information they need, so we have added a couple of tabs on the Information for Members menu which we hope might help clarify things a bit.  We have added "Quizzes and Talks" which is where you will find all the online events we have offered, and where you will be able to find links to the replays.  We've also added a 'Newsletters' tab so that you can easily find these in one place.  This means that 'Programme Planning' now does exactly what it says on the tin - all the resources to help you plan your programme of activities for your group, whether that's for face-to-face meetings or Zoom meetings.

We have also added an "Online Events" tab to the Events menu, so that you can see both upcoming events and past events offered.  However, to listen to the talks you will have to log in as a member and go to 'Quizzes and Talks'.

and 'Magazines' has now been moved to the Members Only area of the website and is also under 'Information for Members'.

Let us know how you are finding it!

.. and we have a few more changes on the way soon.Crossroads Confusion Cartoon

Durham Zooms Ahead

The Durham Group have already started having all their meetings online, starting with a Planning Meeting and then their first Discussion Group on the subject of "What is Nuclear Medicine?".

Enid Hoseason the Local Organiser writes "It worked quite well and instead of going around the room and asking members to contribute, we just went around the screen, and like a normal meeting, those members who did not want to contribute, just listened.  

Members are using different devices, from iphones to iPads and lap tops so those using phones have to swipe the screen to see everyone in the group as they only see four at a time.  it is also useful to use the CHAT button on the bottom of the screen if someone cannot hear very well.

Each week we have had emails from each other, from members who have walked around their gardens and taken photos of their lovely flowers and shared them online - just little things to keep us in touch with each other. I know that tonight, some members have watched the live theatre on the television and others are taking part in the events NWR Head Office are organising.

This is a photo of us enjoying a VE Celebration tea and cake together."
