Tech and a fish supper – tasty!

Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) is a busy place these days. This morning your scribe’s inbox received a cunning invitation to an event they’re organising from 4 pm to 6 pm on Friday 21 May, otherwise known as Silver Surfers’ Day 2010, a national series of events to promote the use of digital technologies by older people.

Promotional leaflet for KWMC SSD event

Micro-chips & Mega-bites will be an afternoon of family computer training with a free fish and chip supper. The event has an inter-generational focus and KWMC hope that young people will bring their older relatives and neighbours and spend some time helping them learn to use computers and the internet (and hopefully vice versa? 😉 Ed.).

We’re advised that booking is essential, so register here.

For further information contact either Makala on makala(at)kwmc.org.uk / 0117 353 2895) or Rachel on rachel.clarke(at)kwmc.org.uk / 0117 903 0444.

So grab your parents, grandparents, or kids and grandkids and show each other a thing or two!

Update: according to the South Bristol Digital Neighbourhoods blog, there’s a minimum of 2 tickets per order.
