Further information

The big development with the Computer Group is that we now have new hardware. Thanks to a kind donation we now have eight computers, six running Windows 10 and Microsoft Office, so that Group attendees as well as Community members have access to up to date software.

The classes are run every Monday, 10-12 am.  Those attending have a wide range of ability, from some who are now adept at using the internet and word processing to others who are absolute beginners. Tutors Pat Coyne and Mark Serebriakoff are on hand for help and advice.

The Group also runs classes for budding authors who wish to publish their books. Our publication Mr and Mrs Universe and Their Four Best Friends, a book for children written by Centre member Maureen Annette Russell and illustrated by Laura Caiafa, now available on Amazon, has received very favourable reviews.

There is a charge of £2 per session for both classes, which goes towards the upkeep of the Centre
