Yesterday our fabulous volunteers at Primrose Hill Neighbours Help put on a brilliant afternoon of technology and tea at the Oldfield Estate as part of Spring Online (31 March – 4 April 2014). Spring Online is an initiative that encourages people, often older people, to try out using computers and tablets and the internet, many for the first time.
Over 20 people had a chance to have a go on tablets and get to grips with all the amazing things the internet has to offer from reading newspapers, to doing your shopping to finding places on maps. A crack team of friendly volunteers were on hand to help answer questions and take people on a magical mystery tour of new technology. There was also a demonstration about Breezie (a great piece of software that makes the Internet nice and easy to use, especially for older people).
A lovely afternoon tea was made by Kay and enjoyed by everyone and a lovely time was had by all. A big thank you, especially to Myra, for organising such a great event.
We hope a similar afternoon will be organised soon for another location in Camden through Community Time Camden. And don’t forget if you want to learn how to use computers or get online in the meantime you can also drop into our IT sessions at the Abbey Community Centre Mondays and Wednesdays 2-4pm
