Suspension of Computer Advice Sessions 

Please note: Due to a lack of clients over more than the last six month we have decided to suspend from henceforth  the Computer Advice sessions on Mondays mornings. 

Computer Advice will still be available form our team of Computer Helpers on Thursday mornings at Horizons or on-line at

Queries should be concerned with 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.)

Some on-line courses for you to try:

Learn My Way – making on-line learning easier.

Free  Home and Learn on-line tutorials.
All the courses are aimed at complete beginners, so you don’t need experience to get started.

Open Learn – part of the Open University (offers many free on-line courses on a variety of topics).

FutureLearn – On-line courses offered on a multitude of topics by many universities meant for the general public.

Techie Advice

The Monday morning Computer Advice Group will open for the last time on 29th January 2024.

Bill S and Alan S, thereafter, will continue to be present at their usual table in the Aughton Room during  most Horizons coffee mornings , for any general Computer and Photography advice. And as usual at Horizons Meetings, Alan N and Joyce N will also usually be around and about in the Scout & Guide HQ (often lurking in the Computer Room and available to provide techie-type advice as required).
