Welcome

Coming to the end of 2023 we can reflect on seven years of helping our members cope with the ever-changing landscape of computing. In 2016 Windows computers were our largest interest group but today it is the iPad and it’s great to see so many of our members getting the most from this great piece of equipment. Our membership continues at a high level but there will always be space for those wishing to learn more about computing in its various forms. Take a look at our downloads page to appreciate the type of help that we provide.

Many of our members are retired and their varied leisure interests often require them to become proficient in using the Internet. Computers are a great idea. The ability to keep in touch with friends and family is so important. Being able to buy what we need without leaving the house can be vital at times but also a simple pleasure. Just browsing the internet helps us stay in touch with what’s happening in the world as well as feeding our interest in a wide variety of topics. We take internet security very seriously and do a lot of work trying to ensure that our members develop safe practices that keep their digital lives secure.

It starts to get a bit tricky when things go wrong. It might just be something simple that doesn’t work as it should. Or a mysterious error message that means nothing to you. It can be confusing and sometimes expensive to sort out.

That’s where we come in. We have a thriving group of members who joined the club because they needed a little more help. We provide training to help you get the most from your computer but we also help when things go wrong, giving advice that will save you time and money.

One of our main aims is to provide training and explanations in simple language and at a pace that you can follow. At a recent AGM 21 out of 22 members told us that we did not go too fast during our training sessions. Many of our members are new to computing and find it difficult. We try to make life that little bit easier for you.

The club was established in 2016 in Fornham All Saints, Bury St Edmunds, and is run by volunteers. A small team of presenters provides a wide range of tutorials to improve your skills and we are happy to help out when you have a particular problem and need a bit more help.

If you like the sound of it, come along to a meeting and try it out. If you like it there is a small annual membership fee currently £10 for iPad and the same for Windows.

We have a contact page on the menu above, please get in touch if you have a question.

We also support the Great Barton Computer Club, so if that village is closer to where you live, go to https://gbcc.onesuffolk.net for more information. This club has a group for Mac users.
