Debbie Howe, Digital Inclusion Project Co-ordinator, is encouraging people to come along on Thursday, 25 August between 10am and 12pm.

“We get together on the last Thursday of each month and pair attendees with a ‘Digital Champion’, who show people that getting online is not as daunting as it may appear.

“No matter what level of skills people have, I would urge them to come along to see the advantages of the online world, including keeping in touch with family and friends, looking for work and saving money.”
