Latest news regarding Computer Advice

Computer Advice session will be suspended for the summer months i.e. June –August. Computer Advice will still be available, during this period, at Horizon sessions, or by e-mailing elearning@aughton-ormskirk-u3a.co.uk. The reason for this suspension is that there have been very few clients to make use of these facilities. If you don’t use them they may disappear altogether. For further information contact the e-mail address given above.

Queries should be limited to those connected with software – including computer / laptop / tablet /smartphone problems,  digital photography issues, and, especially in these times, digital communication matters. (We are not able to deal with hardware problems.)

Computer Help in Normal Times

If you have a problem with your computer or you don’t know how to do something on it, and you need some advice, come along. If you have a laptop, tablet or smartphone, bring it along with you. We give personal one-to-one help on usage and problems including email and attachments, processing photos, security, computer networks, social networking  etc.

No appointments are needed. But please check availability over holidays periods such as Christmas, Easter and Summer.

For more information (or if you would like to offer any help), please contact Willem Wiechers on 01695 573744 or email on  elearning@aughton-ormskirk-u3a.co.uk.
