THE Coffs Seniors Computer Club is back to holding its regular groups and classes every Monday morning from 8:30am at the Cavanbah centre.

With the motto of ‘Seniors helping Seniors’ the club provides guidance and training in the use of today’s technology, including mobile phones, tablets, computers and specialised apps and software.

When News Of The Area visited the club on Monday 8 March, nearly 50 members were engaged in half a dozen different workshops and classes throughout the centre.

Instruction and practice was being given in how to use smart phones and tablet devices for both Android or iOS operating systems, introduction to using Windows 10, how to use social media, and mastering Adobe PhotoShop.

The sessions are led by experienced seniors and volunteers with expertise in their particular area of technology and are delivered to small groups spread throughout the centre.

Club President Mary Voutos said, “The club is a place for seniors to find out what they need to know about today’s technology and enjoy a social environment where they can develop friendships and have fun while they learn and play together.”

Club members related that the club’s work was extremely beneficial and helped them to not be left behind in our increasingly technology-based society.

Using skills they had learned at the club helped them to keep in touch with family, access online shopping, use beneficial apps like Fires Near Me for personal safety and to expand their social lives.

New members are always welcome, for more information call the club on 0481 308 192 or go to
