AGE is no barrier to learning at Wolverham Community Centre.
There are courses for everyone at the centre this autumn and learning co-ordinator Chris Brown said: “You are never too old – or too young – to learn.”
She added that the late Joan Johnson, a founder member of the centre, was 80 when she first learnt how to use a computer.
Chris said: “We are here to help everyone enjoy learning.”
English with computers is a new course for complete beginners in computing who would like help with their English.
The course will teach basic Microsoft Word, email and the internet. There are six places available and the course will be repeated in the new year and after Easter.
A four-week course for the unemployed offers help with writing CVs and letters, improving self-esteem and some one-to-one support for jobseekers. The course starts at the end of September.
Quaker Tapestry is a new community project at the centre.
Chris said: “The idea is to make a big community tapestry panel for the community centre. It will be very basic simple tapestry, like the Bayeux tapestry, using basic ‘back stitch’. It is for everyone who can sew or who would like to learn to sew.”
This will run on Mondays, from 1-3pm, starting at the end of September.
Also on offer is a digi-camera course, teaching the basics for using a digital camera, including how to download photographs onto a computer and how to do portrait photographs. There are seven places available on the course.
