Global Gardens Project
Hello I am involved in Global Gardens Project, a community garden project and we are having a community build over the next 2-3 months, building a kitchen/classroom in collaboration with an architect and carpenter. Perhaps this could be of interest to current students of the U3A interested in getting involved in a community build project? We are particularly interested in making links with people with carpentry/building experience. Contact Poppy at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0792002189304/11/2019
Computer Users : from information provided by a member of the Computer Group:
If you have a problem with your computing device and can’t get any joy from the company who supplied it to you (and that includes them quoting exorbitant costs or trying to fob you off with ... “it can’t be mended” - which could be one and the same thing - then a number of members of U3A have used the services of “We’ll Fix Your PC” who are based in Llanishen.
To date, I’m not aware of any bad experiences and only glowing recommendations. Neil (the owner) will handle your problem sympathetically and very patiently and will not (as far as I’m aware) charge you for assessing what the problem is. A recent case in point was an “all-in-one” PC that was assessed as irreparable by a high-street chain and diagnosed as a failed hard-disk that could not be replaced - because the manufacturers website “said so” - and it was less than 4 years old!! A trip up to Llanishen found the problem to be a software problem which was quickly fixed and our U3A member saved themselves well over £1000 on a replacement machine!
So consider giving “We’ll Fix your PC" a visit when you have problems with your PC, Mac, iPad or Tablet. Their website is - https://wewillfixyourpc.co.uk23/01/2020
