Welcome to our brand new website at
Kenton & District u3a
Welcome to our new website which aims to be a helpful and informative resource for both the members of the Kenton & District u3a, and for the public at large who may be interested in an active and worthwhile resource for local people.
FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND THE NEW WEBSITE
At the top of your screen, under the blue area, is a menu of page headings which will take you to a web page with a single click. On the right hand side towards the top is a Search Box. Type a word or two into the box, and click on the blue search button, and you will be shown a summary of the pages where those words appear (you can use with numbers too!). Below the Search Box is the Calendar with today’s date showing with a pale yellow background. You can move forwards or backwards a month at a time with the two orange arrows above the calendar on the left hand side.
In the Calendar are the forthcoming events. If you hover your mouse over one of the coloured bars in the Calendar, a speech bubble will appear with a summary of the event. If you click on a coloured bar, a more detailed screen appears with the full details for that event, including exactly where and when it is happening, and a blue link to the event organiser. Click on the blue link and an email will be set up for you addressed to the organiser. (The email address is the Kenton & District U3A address for the person and the email address is encrypted so as to keep nasty people out.) On the detail screen, you can click on the Where name to see the other events in that venue. You can click on the Event Type to see the other events of that type in the Calendar. A full screen version of the Calendar can be found under Events on the page headings menu at the top of the screen.
Below the Calendar on the right hand side are the five most recent event reports. You can click on the photograph or the title of the event, and a new screen will appear with the brief report of the event and possibly some more photographs of the event. In the new screen, you can move forward in time or backwards in time through the events by clicking on Next and Previous. Below that is an archive of the reports, organised by individual months.
The new website has been designed to work on Desktop Computers, Laptop Computers, Tablets and Mobile phones. If you have a problem with the website, you can contact the Webmaster by email and our Webmaster will try and help you. This website was specially designed for Kenton & District U3A and is entirely owned by Kenton & District U3A.

SAFETY IS IMPORTANT TO US
We hold nearly all our meetings face-to face at the Harrow District Masonic Centre in the middle of Northwick Circle. Our experience is that all our members are happy to meet indoors in the Centre’s spacious rooms and appreciate being able to interact with other members. We have measures in place to protect ourselves and each other against Covid-19. For more details see NOTICES PAGE.
The latest Kenton & District u3a news is also available on the EVENTS PAGE which gives a full listing of our current interest groups plus the dates and times where they meet.
