New Forest residents who want to get online can learn how at New Forest District Council’s series of free events in New Milton during the national ‘Be Online’ week.
Our group of volunteers, the ‘digital champions’, will be at the drop in events to chat to people and show them the basics. They are all local people who are already using email, and the web and want to show others how easy it is to get online – be that with a computer, or on a tablet or mobile phone.
Julia, one of the digital champions, said, “There’s a big world out there online and it’s all at your fingertips. You can pay bills online, do crosswords, save money, book holidays, and keep in touch with family and friends. It can seem scary getting started but if you think about it, a computer is just a plastic box.”
