We had our first meeting on 24th September in the Burton Pavilion (pictured above) an excellent venue for us as it has broadband, wifi and a huge TV screen on the wall.
26 of our 47 members attended and were regaled with two presentations: What is inside a computer, tablet and phone; How the internet Works, both aimed at complete novices. Some of our planned topics didn’t go ahead because, unfortunately, the Pavilion’s broadband router had died the day before. As a result we are saving those for next month.
It quickly became clear that a hot topic for next month will be mobile phones, especially smartphones, what all the icons mean and how to manage and transfer photos.
We have had some feedback on the first meeting but I think this one sums it up: “Much enjoyed the Friday meeting. Learned a lot.” SR
