Sheffield people get help to get online

Have your say

WOULD-BE silver surfers are invited to an event in Sheffield where they can find out more about the internet and getting online.

The event will give older aspiring computer users the chance to get connected, and will take place at the Meadowhall Retail Park branch of the Carphone Warehouse.

Branch manager John Lattimore said: “We are hoping to inspire and guide. We are running a pilot where we will invite members of the older community to come and experience connected technology and see just how the connected world can help make their lives easier.”

Members of the store’s ‘geek squad’ will also be on hand to offer advice at the event on Tuesday, April 24, from 9am until 2pm and there will be free refreshments on offer.
