Silver Surfer Training

 The Village Hall runs a series of Silver Surfer Training Courses, starting with Absolute Beginners and taking students through the Internet Essentials. Each course runs for three consecutive Tuesday afternoons from 2-5pm.

The cost of each course is £60 with up to six students, payable 14 days before the beginning of the course (this guarantees a place).

Computer Cafe

Each Friday morning the Village Hall opens their Computer Cafe from 9am until 12:30. This is a drop-in cafe where you can bring all your computing problems and get a cup of coffee. We have five very friendly mentors with a combined wealth of experience covering a total of more than 130 years! So whether it's 'how do I download something' to 'help, my computer has stopped working' we will be able to solve it.

If you are experiencing problems on a laptop, tablet or smartphone please bring it in and let us help you. If you have a desktop computer you can of course bring that, although it may not be too easy - in which case, if we can't help you in the Computer Cafe one of our mentors will make a home visit for a small fee.

And we only charge £2 per 30 minutes with a capped charge of £8 per session. Oh, and did we mention the free refreshments?
