Technology with Tea continues at St Thomas’
Well-received technology sessions for the over-50’s being held at St Thomas’ Church are set to continue.
Local technology sessions for those less comfortable with navigating smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices are continuing in Colnbrook, on a twice-weekly basis.
The well-received sessions were featured in the October edition of the Slough Citizen, the Council’s online newsletter.
Held by the Acasia community group the morning sessions are aimed at helping the over 50s get better at using technology.
After successfully being awarded a grant from the People’s Health Lottery, the group’s founder Nancy Njihia set up Technology with Tea.
What is Acasia? The Old Bath Road, Colnbrook-based charity was started to keep children from ethnic minorities off the streets and out of trouble and involved in social activities art, music and dance. It aims to promote social cohesion, inclusion and to encourage participation of black and minority ethnic families in Slough and its surroundings. The group runs activities promoting healthy living and wellbeing, and hosts social events including family fun and cultural awareness.
There are two sessions running on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 10am until 12noon at St Thomas’s Church, Vicarage Way, Colnbrook.
Those attending are given the opportunity to learn how to use computer tablets and electronic devices safely and the chance to access shopping sites, search engines and email.
The forum provide an “easy and relaxed atmosphere” and includes having a cup of tea and socialising with other local residents.
I was scared to use any computer. Joining the class I have been taught to send e-mails, take and send photos, correct my mistakes and more.
Comments from participants have been overwhelmingly positive.
