Old tech scuppers plans to take new tech to Moray communities

Plans to bring technology training to local people in Moray had to be scrapped this week when a mechanical fault developed in the bus being used for the mobile sessions.

Living it Up Moray had aimed to tour several sites in Moray from Tuesday to Friday this week, delivering their clutch of innovative health, care and wellbeing services via familiar technology products.

The three-year initiative uses mobile phones, games consoles and table computers to demonstrate how people can become better connected with their communities and those that they care for.

However, it was technology of an older kind that left the Living it Up team with no choice but to postpone their scheduled visits to Keith, Forres, Buckie and Elgin over the next four days.

Spokeswoman for Living it Up Moray, Lorna Bernard, explained: “A fault has developed in the bus we use as a base for our mobile sessions and there was simply no time for repairs to be affected before we were due to be on the road this week.

“So regrettably we have had to postpone these sessions for the meantime but we will be setting up new dates very soon so do keep looking out for updates.

“In the meantime, if anyone would be interested in trying out technology with our friendly volunteers in a friendly and informal setting, then we would ask them to contact us on 01343 567135 or at moray@livingitup.org.uk.”
