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.
When I come to drop-in center I really enjoy myself.
The atmosphere is friendly, you meet people have a chat.
When I come to the drop-in center I have learned how to switch the computer on. I can go to you tube where I can see how to knit crochet, play games and learn more about the computer.
To day is a very busy day at the center there are people coming going every minute the bell rings.
Having started my day with a hearty breakfast I made from home to the Whitmore Community Centre.
Having been welcomed by Sally and introduced to Rick upon my arrival I was introduced to Hyacinth whom I am helping to write her blog.
Today’s hero is Wadley — learning IT and sharing what he already knows a lot about. Wadley is a genius in the kitchen — fed everybody with his own Saltfish-&-Ackee recipe (plus yellow yam, plantain, and dasheen).
We found a deadly yam lurking in the kitchen. You’ll never guess what happened next!
