Good morning to all IT people at our drop in class this morning.
Last week I was shown how to do word processing which was very interesting, with one of the volunteers by the name of Mark. I shall have to have a few more lessons to master this subject.I really enjoy coming to my weekly classes, and we have a very nice cross section of people from Hackney. Our classes are always well attended even in the winter months.
Learn 1:1 with our volunteers
Our volunteer team will help you learn basic word-processing – including how to add photographs to your documents.
It’s very easy, even for beginners. You can definitely do it too. By the end of the workshop, you will have at least one classy document worth printing.
This special workshop will be on Wednesday 24 January – starting as soon as possible after 10 am.
If you can, get here early!
When I first came here I could not use the computer.

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.
