The Bookham Seniors Computer Club
Welcome to the website of the Bookham Seniors Computer Club. The club was established in 2010 to help Seniors in Bookham and the surrounding area to learn to use a computer. Its aim is to help the over 50s in the local community use a computer, laptop or tablet to communicate with family and friends, access information from the internet, enhance hobbies and interests and save time and money using the internet for things like shopping, getting a tax disc, watching on demand TV and generally feel confident using computer technology.
Beginners and improvers are welcomed to the club which provides a variety of courses including:
- Beginners Course covering the basics of using the internet and email on PCs and tablets. This course meets for 5 weeks
- Word Processing covering letter writing, invitations and other documents (3 weeks)
- Spreadsheets covering creating tables and charts (2 weeks)
- PowerPoint covering creating posters and presentations (2 weeks))
- Digital Photography covering saving pictures from camera to PC, editing and sharing them with others via email (5 weeks)
- Improvers Course covering email, internet and laptop/tablet management (3 weeks)
- Address Labels covering creating address labels for Christmas mailings (1 week)
- Using social media covering using Facebook and Twitter (1 week).
These courses are held on Friday mornings from 10:00am to noon at the Little Bookham Village Hall.
The club is run by volunteers so there is a modest fee for these courses which helps to cover costs.
The club also runs informal, no-need-to-book, drop-in sessions where you can come to get help with any problem you are having, or questions that you have, about either PCs or the various ‘tablets’ that are becoming popular. These sessions are free and held on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month from 2.30 to 4.30pm at the Little Bookham Village Hall.
