New Course and Workshop Booking Number

The Committee has decided to provide the Enrolments Coordinator with a mobile phone that will become our primary phone number for booking all Classes and Workshops. This has been done for several reasons including freeing up the Coordinator’s personal phone for private use, ease of handover when the coordinator travels/is unavailable, a separate voicemail for SeniorNet messages and the ability to offer WhatsApp calls.

The new Course and Workshop booking number is 021 169 6256 and takes effect immediately. Please do not use Elaine’s private phone for any further SeniorNet calls – all our documentation (paper and website) has been updated with the new number. WhatsApp users can also call or message this phone directly. Continue reading
