A new computer self help group aimed at the fifty plus age group started on Thursday 7th June at the Stan Ball Centre in Bloxwich.
The group forms part of the Stan Ball Centre Young at Heart Project 50 + Friendship Circle which started on the 23rd May and offers a variety of friendship opportunities throughout the week, such as breakfast meetings, hosted lunches, dancing lessons and Tai Chi.
Deb Brownlee, Young at Heart Project Co-ordinator said:
“The idea of the self help computer club is that everyone knows just a little bit, in fact usually more than they think they do, and by pooling knowledge we will all learn something new or solve problems small or large. We hope the group will also become very social, as that is the aim of all the activities within the Friendship Circle. And if we do get stuck with a question, we’ll find out for the next time”.
The group will run weekly from 5pm to 7pm, and will cover any computer related issue such as computer security, emails, facebook, ebay, and a wide variety of software. There is an entrance fee of £1.50 and participants are welcome to bring their own laptops. Refreshments will be available.
Computer lessons for complete beginners are also available at the centre, along with digital photography and computer maintenance.
