ITea time for silver surfers

SILVER surfers have been enjoying ITea and biscuits – learning new computer skills combined with a cuppa and nibbles.

The taster session, run at Brighton Street Community Centre in Heckmondwike, is encouraging older people who may have a small amount of internet experience, or never used a computer before to become a silver surfer in a relaxed atsmosphere.

It is also another way for the older people to keep in touch with their family and friends, or find a new hobby.

The session was the first in a five week programme, with the next on October 19.

Lorraine Noble from Get It Together Project, which is running the event with Age UK and Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, said: “I am looking forward to meeting and helping individuals who may not yet have had chance to find out about the benefits of the internet.”
