I have been coming to whitmore drop in centre for nearly a year now, but before I came here. I first went to the lawns in in newington green to join the hackney streamers age uk to learn about computers and lap-tops as a silver surfer.
When the lawns closed down I went to open school east in downham road to continue my classes,then they closed down.but I was told about the whitmore drop in centre.
I really enjoy coming here to continue to learn. All the people who come here are very nice. What is really important to me is that I can send e-mails to my grandchildren and receive e-mails from them and look up on the website.
