COASTAL COMPUTER CENTRE
The Coastal Computer Centre was originally formed by Stan Whitfield in 1999 for the purpose of offering an easygoing training session for members of the community who were interested in using computers and for meeting to share joint problems which it was hoped would be overcome. This is held in a very friendly atmosphere and there is no pressure to force anyone to learn, everything is very free and easy and no membership is required, come and go as you please.
These meetings are held at the St. Mary's Bay Village Hall, on Wednesdays in two sessions, the first between 10 a.m. to 12 noon and the second from 1.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.
They have become very popular that we even have visitors from Hawkhurst and Tenterden.
The cost for either session is £3.00 which covers the cost of the hall rent and a good ‘cuppa’. There are a variety of computers, scanners, printers, digital cameras, so anyone who attends would more than likely be familiar with one or other machine. There are also all versions of the Windows operating system which enables a learner to see one that is recognizable to them.
There are a number of members who are well conversant with computers and many and varied different programmes so that most of the time there would be one or other who could answer questions on most subjects and can also teach specific skills without any pressure.
We are very friendly and welcome new members so please come along.
Sadly, Stan died on the 13th October 2005, but the remainder of the team are determined that we shall carry on in the manner in which Stan would have liked so please give us your support.
