Centre’s free internet award

Have your say

A COMMUNITY centre has been awarded a year’s free internet.

New Lodge Community Centre in Barnsley held a celebration event after it was given the connection through BT Community Connections.

The award will allow computer and internet taster sessions to be held at the centre for people of all ages.

The centre applied for the award with assistance from Berneslai Homes, Yorkshire Housing and ‘Get IT Together Barnsley’.

Richard Allen, secretary of the management committee, said: “We’re so pleased to have been recognised by BT Community Connections. The year’s free broadband is fantastic and will really help more people to learn how to use the internet.”
