Never too old to learn about technology at Chew Stoke event
Older people enjoyed ITea and biscuits during a technology advice session at the Stoke Inn in Chew Stoke.
The session was run by Age UK B&NES with 14 people attending and discovering more about using computers, tablet computers, mobile phones and the internet.
Karen Lyne, Age UK B&NES' new community development worker in the Chew Valley, said she had been pleased with how it had gone.
She said: "It was a really successful event and everyone appreciated being able to share information and experiences.
"Our partners Bath Community Learning, provided a tutor for digital photography, which attracted a lot of interest.
"I'd also like to thank The Stoke Inn for providing coffee, tea and cakes."
One person who attended gave feedback to say they nearly didn't go in, but was made to feel very welcome.
They added that they had learnt how to use an iPad.
Age UK B&NES said that sometimes, simple problems cause the greatest worries for people, such as how to pick up text messages; the difference between pay as you go and a contract charges and how to download photographs.
To address this, it is planning to set up a group in the Chew Valley called Gadget Busters.
New volunteers are needed to help run this group, so if you have a good understanding of technology and can offer couple of hours a month, please get in touch with Karen on the number below.
A local Lunch Bunch is also being set up in the Chew Valley, similar to the one which already runs in Midsomer Norton and Radstock, where people get together in a different local pub once a month.
If you're interested in volunteering or joining in, then please contact Karen on 07581 318978 Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
