The SILVER SURFERS computer club instigated and enthusiastically fostered by the late Gordon Murray has been going now for several years. In that time we have had lots of satisfied customers. Our aim is to provide friendly help and advice to anyone with an interest in using their computer, be it a Laptop or the increasingly popular Tablet.
Over the years the applications have been many and varied; sometimes its a computer glitch but mostly it is discussing and demonstrating, on a one-to one basis, particular features of the computer. Such features have included emailing, the use of 'Google for gaining information on almost any subject under the sun, on-line shopping (Amazon and the like), investigating local planning applications, the use of SKYPE whereby it is possible to conduct a face-to-face conversation on the computer screen with a family member or friend, on-line banking, finding cheaper train tickets, TV and radio on-line, photographic imagery, and more.
We, the mentors (usually there are two or three of us available) will continue to operate at the Broadmayne Village Hall on a Thursday morning from 10.00 a.m. to Noon. No need to book- just drop in. Open to all in Broadmayne, West Knighton, Warmwell and Owermoigne. There is no charge; you can make a small donation if you so wish.
