Computing and Technology


We meet on the first and third Wednesdays each month from 10:00 to 12:00 in the church hall of St Peter RC Church on Higham Road, between the junctions with Hayway and Washbrook Road.
(Go through the gate and the hall entrance is straight ahead at the end of the alleyway.)

Group A covers PCs and Laptops running Windows, and is for users of all levels.

Group B used to be held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month working on Mobile and Technology products with Android / iOS but is currently suspended.

Subjects and content for sessions will be scheduled on the Beacon calendar accessible from the home page of this website.

Parking - all those attending the computer group sessions may park free of charge for the duration of the sessions in the supermarket car park of Home Bargains directly opposite the church hall venue.

The group is led by Jim and Maggie Morrison. Each meeting we aim to have a topic covered in a presentation, then a tea and coffee break, and finally a round the table problem-solving session. We find it helpful to do this as an open session so that other members can contribute and hopefully learn from the exchange.

Please bring your laptop and power cable with you. If you normally use a desktop computer please do not bring it! Hopefully someone will let you watch over his or her shoulder, but it might be useful to bring your own USB stick (flash drive) on which to save notes of what you learned.

We welcome computer users of all levels of ability.

Please remember that there is no such thing as a stupid question, only a stupid answer, and do not be afraid to ask.
We also publish the tutorials here once each presentation has been delivered to the group.
