Last Tuesday a lively group of interested folk attended the first "IT and Tea" session in the Church Hall.
This was a free session run in workshop style by a friendly and helpful group of volunteer tutors from Age UK Cheshire, and was supported by the Henbury Society. People brought along their own tablets, iPads and laptops, and spares were available for those who didn't have them.
Running an event like this has been made possible because Henbury Parish Council have financed the installation and ongoing costs of wifi in the Church Hall.
Attendees had all sorts of questions for the tutors. Some were easy to help with, and others took a bit more thought. Fortunately the tutors were kind enough to go away and research and supply answers after the event as well — much appreciated! Email and sharing and storing photos were particularly popular topics.
We were also fortunate to have two of our local Police Community Support Officers attending, and they were able to offer advice on security and other topics. The feedback from attendees was positive, and people enjoyed the social element as well as the learning.
Henbury Online will be following up with all the attendees to find out more about specific areas of interest for future events. It's likely that next time there would be an initial presentation on a specific topic e.g. Email, Photography, eBay, Skype, FaceTime etc, before running another workshop session.
