Digital Skills group in Stanstead Abbotts
Know someone who struggles to send an email, online shop, use video conferencing and much more? From Friday 29 April from 10.30 to 12 noon, we are hosting the first of our digital skills group at Nigel Copping Community Building in Stanstead Abbotts. This group is a fantastic way for participants to learn what they’ve always wanted to know about technology and how to do basic things online that they have either found difficult or confusing. A very sociable and friendly group where all are invited to attend for free. Those attending should bring along with them their own charged devices that they wish to use. To book, call us on 0300 123 1034 to attend on every last Friday of the month apart from August and December. Click here for more information.
