New Executive Committee

Exec committeeThe new Executive Committee has met for the first time and as always is looking to improve our courses, create new Courses and make learning easier for members. If you have not attended a Course for some time then now is the time to phone Teresa to book a spot as over the last year or so Windows 10 has changed the way computers operate. Much easier when you know how.

Email Using Windows Mail

Reminder for this Course. Windows 10 contains a brand new, modern email program (called Windows Mail) which is an excellent substitute for Windows Live Mail. We are just completing development of a new Course to teach our members all about Windows Mail and the first class starts on 1 September and will be taken by Peter Jones (the Course developer). Why not enrol now and find out what this new, easy-to-use email programme is all about. Give Teresa a call on (04)2983132. NB Make sure you make it clear to Teresa that you want to do the Windows Mail Course
