Winfrith Coffee Morning

Digital Champions in Winfrith

What a great turnout for the coffee morning and IT and digital training session down in the beautiful Wessex countryside in Winfrith Newburgh’s splendid village hall. it was really encouraging to see such a good turnout, and I’m looking forward to returning for the next digital help session already. Some very friendly volunteers provided much appreciated coffee and cakes too.

Today we talked about things like targeted ads on social media, and pop up ads – a thorny issue for many people. Do you find them annoying or helpful? Are they an unwelcome spy in your machine watching your every move, or a friendly nudge towards things that might well interest you? Share your thoughts on here. We also looked at slow running computers – another recurring problem with computer owners, it seems. A chance to update your operate system? That’s definitely worth considering.

If you missed the March IT digital skills and coffee morning, I’ll be back in April – See my upcoming events to follow where I’ll be each month. I hope to see a few of you popping along, and remember, if you wish, you can come back each month and build upon your learning. Wessex Digital. C.
