Completely full in the large Meeting Room. The ICT Room was given over to a research team from Citizens Advice — eight people earned a £25 shopping voucher after helping the team with the usability of a new web form design.
Special thanks to our regular volunteers Charlie, Derek, Liz, Michael and Tom.
Whitmore Community Centre has upgraded the Internet connection. It’s faster and supports more devices. Thirty people using it, no problems that we noticed, but plenty of life-affirming personal successes.
The 50+ drop-in has expanded into the ICT Room at Whitmore Community Centre. The desktop computers are new — installed yesterday — and an Internet service upgrade will follow soon. So the project is using two spaces at WCC. Both were full today.
We thought the session would be quieter than usual because a clashing event had drawn away some of our regulars. But we were almost overwhelmed by the number of people who did turn up. We can’t claim it was the highest attendance yet because we lost count after 30. Next week we will expand into the community centre’s newly refurbished IT Room — with new desktops for 8 people and space for up to 4 other users and volunteers.
Special thanks to volunteers Ajay & Bradley (from Carey Group) and Olly from Mace Group, via Benefacto – and our regular volunteers Derek and Michael.
