Are you frightened of your computer or need help to get it to do what you want? Want to know how to handle zip files or what they are? Need help with email attachments? If so, you’re not alone! Take your own laptop to Clarborough and Welham IT Group or use one of their Windows 10 machines.

All sessions open with gardeners question time, providing you with opportunities to drive lessons in areas that you want. Every session has at least one worksheets/lesson plan for you to take away. Recent topics have covered basic filing skills, keyboard shortcuts, word processing, image editing, adding emails and online safety, research and purchasing — you name it, the group will try to provide it!

Classes take place in Clarborough Village Hall in five-week blocks (school term-times only) on either Tuesday afternoons (from 1.30pm to 3.00pm) or Wednesday mornings (from 10.00am to 11.30am). Fees are just £20.00 for a full block and include installation of a range of free, open-source, office and image editing applications. Free wi-fi is available in all classes, providing opportunities to explore online topics too.

The group is keen for volunteers to join their current team. It’s worth noting that volunteering is a good route back into employment for anyone who has been out of that for a while; the group can help with your CV and also provide a reference.

Autumn 2018 classes resume week commencing 17th September but tend to fill quickly, so you are advised to book your place no later than 31st August. For more information or to book contact Greg on 01777 700918 or email clarboroughwelham@gmail.com.

Classes run through 30 weeks each year; for a full calendar to July 2019 visit the group’s website www.cwitgroup.btck.co.uk.
