We are not the only drop-in IT help centre in Hackney. The video shows a very successful project run by the Trowbridge Senior Citizens Club. We don’t know exactly when they are open, but they are easy to find on the Trowbridge Estate in Hackney Wick.
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.
The reason why bringing my own laptop is because when i come at 50+drop in i can learn the computer more when am at home and i make a mistake i just close the laptop down! so am glad to be here when i can make it
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.
