Internet things oneIT Classes        

Since the Autum of 2013 we have been running various ‘IT’ Classes/Sessions in the Hall, the aim is to have a community in which everyone, whatever their age, income or education, can use the Internet safely and with confidence. We consider it very important that people become familiar with the use of computers, not necessarily in great depth, but to be able to access services and to keep in touch with friends and family

Spring 2022                                                                                                                  The Memorial Hall is pleased to say that Cornwall Rural Community Charity (CRCC) are able to return to our community to provide more IT Instruction

The aim of these sessions is to give guidance and help people use phones, tablets and laptops with more confidence. There will be a maximum of six on each course, they will be informal and there will be plenty of tea and biscuits

The courses will be Wednesdays 13th and 27th April, 4th 11th and 18th May. Morning 10.30-12.30 or Afternoon 1.30-3.30

Topics will include:  Staying safe and secure online and finding information on the NHS websites to aid your health and wellbeing
