After a successful group meeting on Zoom the Alperton Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group has decided to utilise the video conference facility to overcome social isolation in the ward and beyond.
A virtual coffee morning is planned for April 12th 10.30am-11.30am LINK and there is a possibility of a quiz in the future.
Zoom is free for the first 40 minutes.
Doug Lee of Brent Play Association, which is based at Peppermint Point in Alperton, said:
The Alperton Mutual Aid group held a meeting via Zoom which was very productive and it was suggested that more people could get involved via the Zoom app which is totally free and easy to use. People could use it as we did to discuss ways of helping and volunteering efforts, but also to connect with family members. Just get the app, agree on a time, and away you go!
It could be used for special interest groups, quizzes and all sorts of gatherings.
