Bristol Wireless reopens City Farm Computer Room

KeyboardBristol Wireless will be officially reopening the Computer Room at Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster on Thursday 21st October after a brief period of closure.

To mark the reopening, we’ll be holding an open access drop-in session from 10am-4pm on that day to encourage new internet users to get online as part of UKOnline’s Get Online Week. New users will be able to have one-to-one training and support in all aspects of using a computer, the worldwide web, email, browsing, searching and social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Open access will then be provided between those hours until the end of October.

Bristol Wireless volunteer and Training Manager Jim Farrand said: “We’ve just moved into the City Farm’s computer room this month and we’d like to introduce ourselves and our work to our new neighbours in Bedminster. The day will be an opportunity for people who’ve never been online to come along and get advice and support.”

“For those who are already online,” he continued, “it’ll be a chance to see what other services Bristol Wireless provides, have a look at our work with free and open source software and refurbished computers. Perhaps they’d like to get involved themselves, as we always welcome new volunteers.”

So come along and pay us a visit next Thursday. Time it right and we may even have the kettle on. 🙂

    An excellent article! Well done to you all on completing the move. I’m really looking forward to seeing our new premises myself.

    I hope the Open Day goes well and lots of new faces come to see what we do. Good luck to all!

    Hi Ronnie

    Thanks for your offer, but I think we’ve got most things covered. Your sparkling wit and enthusiasm should be enough to bring along. 😉
