Are you a senior and need help with computer technology?

The Clarence Valley Seniors’ Computer Club is holding an Open Day / Promotional morning at the club’s premises, located at 48 River Street Maclean, on Monday January 17 at 10am until 12 noon.

This promotion morning is being held to showcase how seniors can come together to learn and understand digital technology in a friendly and safe environment provided at the computer club.
Computers, smart phones and even smart televisions were not part of senior’s lives and now seniors in their aging years are forced to cope with all this modern technology at such a rapid pace.
To most seniors this can be quite daunting and they can feel left behind unless they embrace the way businesses are transacted these days.
The open day format is to allow seniors who are 50 years and over to come into the club to see how the Seniors’ Computer Club can help them understand and learn how to use digital devices. Seniors who need help using phones to log onto government websites, searching for Covid information, travel, accommodation and buying online, may need to know how to undertake all these tasks in a secure and safe way.

The club is located at 48 River Street in Maclean just up the hill past the Post Office. The club entrance off River Street has steps and seniors who may need ramp access, will find this at the back of the building coming off MacNaughton Place.

The club offers members a range of lessons starting from basics for beginners advancing onto lessons for learning more about computer technology. The club also has lessons on how to use portable devices, such as phones, iPads, tablets, and even smart televisions. Seniors will find that the club offers lessons catering for their creative interests such as making cards, posters, labels and even photo editing on phones. Lessons are also available on photography and genealogy. The club also has classes where you ask any questions and receive help.

Phone 0423 629 894 if you need more information about this special function, as the club is currently closed and not officially reopening until Monday January 24 to start lessons for Term One.

Please check Covid restriction on the morning of entry. Seniors 50 years and over are most welcome to attend.
