26 March 2015

Residents in Skegness can try their hand at surfing the internet for free, thanks to our brand new computer hub at Seathorne Community Hall, in Winthorpe.

Surfing In Skegness Web

The new Digi-Access Point was officially opened by the Mayor of Skegness, Councillor George Saxon on 20March and is part of Waterloo’s initiative to help residents get online in friendly and comfortable surroundings.

There are lots of benefits to getting online, including saving money, applying for jobs, keeping in touch with friends and family and finding a new home. If you haven’t used a computer before, the Digi-Access Point is a great place to start, with support available in dedicated IT sessions if you need it.

On Mondays there is a PC clinic, 10am-12pm and a Silver Surfers session 1pm to 3pm. There is also a drop-in IT session on Fridays from 1pm to 3pm. Volunteers at the centre will be on hand during the IT sessions to help people get online, including help to apply for rented housing through Homes Direct.

The Digi-Access Point is also available and free to use whenever the Community Centre is open, with sessions as follows:

Tuesdays:  1pm - 3pm, Knit and Natter

Wednesdays: 12 - 2pm, Luncheon Club and 6pm, Youth Club

Just pop along to the centre when it is open to give it a try, there’s no need to book or for more information, contact the Seathorne Community Hall chairman, Marie Caine on tel: 07478 191525.
