IT Volunteer wanted by LUCS

Linlithgow Union Canal Society are looking for someone to help look after the Societies IT facilities. After many many years of heading up our IT group, and looking after the myriad of IT related functions that help keep LUCS on an even keel, John Aitken has decided he would like to stand down from this important role.    I am sure everyone at LUCS would like to express their thanks for the sterling work John has contributed to the Society as IT Coordinator, heading up the IT group.
While we are obviously very sad to see John stepping down from this position, it may be that with the current imposed “lockdown” and things being a bit quieter, this may be an ideal time for someone else to take on this role.
Do you have an interest in IT ?
Have you experience in the IT industry ? (not strictly necessary)
Would you like to help the Society ? (much of the work can be done from home)
If you think you can help even in a small way, we would be delighted to hear from you.  Please contact us at ezine@lucs.org.uk.
