What we do

Our aim is to encourage members to discover the potential of a personal device be it a laptop, tablet or smartphone and to use it with confidence.

We do not offer taught courses but, whenever possible, provide one to one support for finding your way around your device. Between us we can hopefully cover most areas. Members work at their own pace on whatever interests them. We have a team of tutors who are on hand to help. New tutors would be particularly welcome.

Favourite activities include: searching the internet, sending emails, building an address book and playing around with your photos.

Our meeting room has a high speed wireless internet connection.

Members range from complete beginners to more experienced users wanting to learn something new or brush up their skills.   These days many of our pupils only need to come for a few weeks.

Classes are held at the Beck Centre at Heron Hill each Thursday afternoon from late September to the end of March. There is a charge of £1.50 per session.


January 2020

The computer group finished the year earlier than planned because of the drop in numbers attending. However we hope that all those who had new laptops, phones and tablets for Christmas will join us in the new year to keep the group going.

Meetings will start on Thursday 16th January at 2pm in the Beck Centre. We are unable to change the date or time of meetings but we might look at how often we do in fact meet.
