Exmouth & District

Computers and New Technology

Status:Active, full but can join waiting list
When: Monthly on Tuesday afternoons
Third Tuesday of each month from 2.00pm – 4.00pm
Venue: Wings Bar (RAFA Club)

This informal group is for those who wish to learn more about how to use their computers and other new technology, whether beginners or more experienced users. Just bring your laptop computer, tablet or smartphone along (or have it ready if we are holding the session on Zoom) and we try to sort out any issues, problems or questions we may have. We now run this group as a ‘surgery’, allocating up to 15 minutes for each problem, issue or topic. That way we can all learn from each other – and it’s very rare that between us we cannot resolve any problem!

We meet in person for most months of the year and occasionally on Zoom in winter months.

Although the group is currently full, we have an active waiting list, and if you add your name to this, it shouldn’t be long before you can join us.
