Abermule Community Centre Digital Services

Over the past two years, with additional affiliated groups joining and improved access to booking, centre usage has significantly increased.In addition to this, we also have a rapidly growing 'Online Community'. For some time, groups and users have enjoyed access to there abermule.cymru e-mail address and the ability to host a website on our servers. We are continually developing services to ensure that our online services are as successful as the Centre itself.In June 2019, we launched HD Web Conferencing, Webcasting / Broadcasting Channel and MS Exchange Hosting. These new services are already a huge success. Web Conferencing has allowed groups to plan activities at Abermule Community Centre meeting online at a time convenient to members, from the comfort of their home.MS Exchange has improved communication across the Community. Our growing directory means that contacting another user is safe and straightforward. MS Teams provides a platform for private or public discussion and the ability to share ideas, work on and share documents.We are currently in the process of developing an Online Community Bulletin Board. Digital Services are available to Affiliates Groups and Individual Members of the Abermule Community. Please get in touch for access or further info.

Summer Recess

As many groups have now broken up for the summer recess Abermule Communtiy Centre will now complete the Recess Clean and annual maintenance. Please be aware of this if you are accessing the Centre over the summer. We generally mark the facilities as out of action on the booking system when we know we are going to be working on them, it is advisable check here if you are using the Centre for an Ad-Hoc / last minute booking.

Can all groups ensure that your bookings throughout the summer are up-to-date so we can ensure the site is secures whilst not in use or accessible when needed.
