Welcome to the website of the Bookham Seniors Computer Club. The club was established in 2010 to help Seniors in Bookham and the surrounding area to learn to use a computer. Its aim is to help the over 50s in the local community use a computer, laptop or tablet to communicate with family and friends, access information from the internet, enhance hobbies and interests and save time and money using the internet for things like shopping, renewing your vehicle tax, watching on demand TV and generally feel confident using computer technology.
We have courses for beginners and for those who would like to learn a little more about using their computers, laptops and tablets. We also provide individual and small group help on particular topics, such as writing letters, organising digitals photos, personalising your computer, setting up an email account and many more.
These courses are held on Friday mornings from 10:00am to noon at the Little Bookham Village Hall.
The club is run by volunteers so there is a modest fee for these courses which helps to cover costs.
The club also runs informal, no-need-to-book, drop-in sessions where you can come to get help with any problem you are having, or questions that you have, about either PCs or the various ‘tablets’ that are becoming popular. These sessions are free and held on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month from 2.30 to 4.30pm at the Little Bookham Village Hall.
