Further information

These are not structured “lessons” and will not be on any particular topic. Our approach will be: try it yourself – ask for help – we give you pointers – we show you how.

Bring your laptop, tablet, iPad or phone and a charger (and tell us if you’re using an Apple product)

We can provide some laptops (but you must let us know by the Mon before)

Comments from last year

“Has given me much more confidence with the computer”  /  “I learned more than I expected”  /  “Nice to do in company, rather than the continual struggle on my own”  /  “Relaxed atmosphere to explore my own needs”  /  “Made me realise I still like learning about the computer”

How much do they cost?

They are free, although we welcome any donations which will go towards putting more sessions on.

Do I need to own a computer, laptop or smart phone?

You do not need to own a computer or smart phone. However please read the question below.

You will get more out of the sessions if you are able to put into practise what you have learnt as soon as possible (within the next few days). However, this could be using one of the computers at the Old School Community Centre or a friend's computer.

Do I need to bring a computer with me?

If you have a laptop, then please do bring it with you.

If you don't, then please let us know by the Monday before the session and we may be able to supply one for the evening.

What else do I need to bring?

Paper and a pen.

Also write down what you want to get out of the session, your questions and things you want to try out before the session.

Who are the trainers/teachers?

This year we are using a wide range of people (experience, ages, male and female), all of whom live or work in the village.

Who is coordinating this project

Massimo Giannuzzi - with support from John Gower and Darren Schroeder and Penny Wainwright (SSB Chair and Trustee) and the other trainers.

Are you planning to put more sessions on?

With the January sessions, we have used up the funding we received, so these will be the last.

Why are the sessions free?

Sustainable South Brent is funding this set of sessions. Any donations collected on the night will go towards putting more sessions on.
