The Deputy Mayor of Warminster, Councillor Phil Keeble was on hand to welcome the public to a free tech support drop in session at Warminster Civic Centre.
The sessions are taking place every Wednesday from 3.30 to 4.30pm. Everyone is welcome to drop in and no appointment is necessary. Whether it is a mobile phone, ipad or laptop, help and advice is available. The service is provided free of charge by pupils at Warminster School.
Councillor Keeble said:
“We live in an ever more online world and it important that everyone has the opportunity to take part.”
“These sessions can provide people with a bit of confidence to try something new. Even simple things can seem complicated without a bit of help and guidance. Perhaps you want to download photos, or sign up to a parking app? Possibly you might like to know how to do a zoom call or how to attach something to an email. Whatever the issue, someone will be able to offer advice.”
“Ironically, the people who need this help the most are probably the least likely to see this service advertised on social media, so we are asking people to pass the message on by simple old fashioned methods by talking to friends and relatives who might appreciate the opportunity to come along.
Councillor Keeble spoke to Robert Richards (pictured) who attended one of the sessions and was most impressed by the help provided.
