New Term

The New Term 2 begins on Monday, 5 May and already some of our Courses are full.
We are running an extra What can I do on my PC’ to cope with demand and there are still a few vacancies in our ‘Introduction to Computers‘ Course. The various workshops including How do I …?‘, Q &A, iPad, Android tablets have attracted a lot of members during the first term and I am sure that the demand will continue into Term 2.

To be sure that you can take part in a Term 2 Course, my advice is first to

look on our website at the overall timetable of Courses being offered and when you have made your choice, then please phone Theresa on 04 2983132.
