We are gradually getting more people coming along to our Club sessions. It is amazing what things we can learn to do. Helped a couple of people book rooms online, buy things and even sell things on local selling sites. Someone showed us how to get jigsaw puzzle apps, very useful for whiling away the time and easy to do on your tablet or laptop.
We are inspired now to use our computers to go on the Google maps, click the tag and be transported to anywhere you choose and walk around seeing the sights. Great for planning or reminiscing.
The opportunity of having training session on being safe online and learning about the pros and cons of online banking is still available but we need more people to come along..
We also have someone who knows all about how to switch service providers to save you money. The first person who tried it out was pleased to see he could save about £200 a year. This covers switching your electricity, gas, phone , insurance all at the touch of your keyboard.
We can also help you find help in many other areas of life, for assistance in being able to find the right people to contact.

BEJOWAN FARM PLANNING
Although we expected a presentation by the Bejowan Farm applicants at our monthly meeting, they did not appear. We have no further information at the present time. Do keep in touch.
COPY AND PASTE THE ABOVE REFERENCE AND THERE ARE 6 DOCUMENTS INCLUDING FULL COLOUR OUTLINE OF PROPOSED SCHEME, AERIAL SHOTS, ETC.
Digital Colan is here! We are, over the next few months, going to arrange training for those who would like to be a Colan Digital Champion and then offer a meeting once a week in the village hall to be there to help anyone, of any age, who needs help with using their mobile phones, laptops, tablets and so on. We all get tangled up trying to remember how to get online, to avoid risks on online banking, let alone getting connected with Skype, Facebook and so on, and on and on?
Do please contact us if you would be interested, either in helping as a Champion or coming to the weekly drop in sessions. Many villages in Cornwall already have these schemes in place and they are very popular. They help us keep up with modern technology, create friends and offer guidance with your particular problems.
Pop into one of our sessions of a Thursday, or leave a message on this website, or contact me on 078729590008
