Drop in sessions

*In response to COVID 19 Drop in sessions have been suspended*

Access the internet for free, practise the skills you have learnt, use Skype, discover new things to try out on the computer and meet like-minded people. No appointment is needed and knowledgeable volunteers are on hand to help with any questions you have.
