Stay in touch online

MEMBERS of North Somerset’s older generation are being encouraged to find out how they can stay in touch with friends and family online.

Age UK Somerset will hold myfriends online week later this month to teach people how to make the most of Internet technology.

myfriends online is an annual campaign ran by Age UK which aims to work with older people to demonstrate the social benefits being online can bring, allowing them to easily contact friends, family and people in their community.

Workshops will be held at Pill Resource Centre in Baltic Place from 10am to noon on Tuesday, at Portishead Library in Harbour Road from 2-4pm on Tuesday and at Clevedon Baptist Church in Queens Square from 10am to noon on March 22.

These are free and will include a short taster sessions, useful tips and leaflet information. Participants can just turn up on the day.
