This week on Wednesday 15th June 2016, those local to South Brent and surrounding villages are invited to attend a free Get Up To Speed skills session and/or broadband meeting at South Brent Old School Community Centre.

The workshop is delivered by Devon and Somerset’s very own experts, Get Up To Speed, a team dedicated to helping anyone from children to business owners learn about technology and boost specific digital skills.

The workshop being held on the 15th June, 2 – 4pm, will be offering an Introduction to iPads in an interactive workshop that will help you to discover how you can use the device to:

  • Capture and edit photos and video

  • and much more!

The workshop is completely free, however, you will need to book your place by calling 0300 123 1185 or visiting www.connectingdevonandsomerset.co.uk/get-up-to-speed/events.

From 5-7pm on Wednesday 15th June, Airband will be there for the Broadband Meeting, that is also free to attend, and will talk about wireless broadband in your area, how it works, the jargon and about the Connecting Devon and Somerset Voucher Scheme, with a demonstration using the free WiFi connection that Airband have supplied to the community centre.

Connecting Devon and Somerset, Get Up To Speed and Airband will all be there presenting, and there will be the opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.

These sessions will be taking place at South Brent Old School Community Centre, Totnes Road, South Brent, TQ10 9BP.

It's fantastic to have proper high speed internet at last! John and the rest of the install team were great, please pass along my thanks.
