Tea & Tech (IT for Seniors) is community project run by the Rotary Club of Barnet at the newly reopened Hope Corner Community Centre, in Barnet. Designed to help retired and semi-retired people cope with key areas of new technology, a group of Rotarians and local volunteers assist residents to follow the specifically-designed custom instructions, moving on to everyday application tasks. The project uses a suite of laptop computers, donated by Rotary, in the purpose-built IT area.
During sessions, we will be covering subjects such as:
- Windows Basics
- Windows 10
- Setting up wifi
- How to use a mouse

We are really so lucky. The centre created in Barnet, called Hope Corner, by Dollis Valley, where people can go to attend various classes and have a lovely cup of coffee and a chat is perfect for us more ‘mature students’.
I have been attending some IT classes on a weekly basis, with a small group of mature people, just like myself, and have learned an awful lot. The trouble with computers is that they move a lot faster than us, mature educated humans. Technology is a tough act to follow. As my son says, never stop learning. This is what I intend, whether the information that goes into our head has the ability to keep it there for longer than a certain term, remains to be seen.
I am just happy that I have been given the chance to attend.
Let us have more PLEASE.
