These days we are all sur­rounded by the ever in­creas­ing and on­go­ing and of­ten con­fus­ing world of com­puter tech­nol­ogy, which to many se­niors is ex­tremely daunt­ing, so a vol­un­tary, not for profit club such as 'Com­puter Pals' is some­thing peo­ple need to be made aware of.

How­ever one con­cern is that few peo­ple know of this club's ex­is­tence, or that it of­fers them so many cour­ses, in­clud­ing a ba­sic, one pupil - one trainer, two hour a week class, plus sev­eral oth­ers in­clud­ing Ad­vanced in­ter­net, Cloud Stor­age, Pass­word Man­age­ment, Face­book, Tablets and Smart­phones and much more.

So to en­cour­age new mem­bers to con­sider join­ing Com­puter Pals, and to share all this , the club has organised two free open days for Tues­day Oc­to­ber 17th from 10.30 am un­til 2.30 pm, and Fri­day Oc­to­ber 20th, from 10 am un­til 12 noon, these to be held at the club's teach­ing rooms in 'The Old Care­taker's Cot­tage' in the show­ground at Cas­tle Hill, si­t­u­ated ad­ja­cent to The Har­vey Lowe Pavil­ion.

This will en­able those in­ter­ested to ob­serve the club in op­er­a­tion, and to also en­joy a de­li­cious morn­ing tea.
