BURWASH COMMUNITY INTERNET CAFÉ

‘DISCOVER YOUR PAST’ WORKSHOP

We held our first ‘Discover Your Past’ workshop in February which was well attended and proved quite interesting!  Initially I could not ‘find’ my mother, but fortunately did eventually as well as the date and location of her marriage to my dad, phew!

We are planning our next workshop and this will take place on Wednesday 12 April 2017, 2pm to 4pm.  Tickets are £2 per person to include a cup of coffee/tea and a biscuit!  To reserve a place in advance talk to a volunteer at the Internet Café or contact me (see contact details below) so we can add your name to the list. 

GENERAL

In the meantime if you have a particular ‘problem’ and would like us to consider running a workshop please talk to one of our volunteers.

Fortunately we have not heard of any more phone scams, but we all need to stay alert.  Make sure you have ‘anti-virus’ software downloaded onto your PC or laptop.  Good browsing practices can help.  Some things are pretty obvious, like don’t browse ‘shady’ sites, or download files from suspicious sources, or click on links from people you don't know (or even if the email appears to be from a friend but only contains a link).  There are a number of free anti-virus programmes available and we can help you to download one at the Internet Café, just pop in and have a chat with one of our helpful, knowledgeable volunteers. 

We are always looking for more volunteers, so if you have a few hours available once or twice a month (or more!), then please contact me to discuss how you can help us to help our friends and neighbours ‘get on line’.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
