The Egerton Experience
Four years ago there was no organised IT in Egerton, today there are over a hundred user/members, six different types of courses and an active self help group of around ten volunteers teaching four nights a week and giving friendly impartial advice at a Saturday Computer clinic. How was it done? By determined volunteers who would not let the problems get too big to tackle.
Anyone who doubts this should go to their web site http//www.egerton-kent.co.uk and see for themselves.
Here in Lenham we have a purpose built space in our new community centre, potential offers of grants for hardware but no volunteers.
Would anyone with a few hours a week to spend helping their fellow villagers tussle with the problems of their new computer please send me an e-mail, just with their name and an expression of interest.
I will undertake to reply, set up a meeting of all interested and get us all invited to the Egerton TeleCottage so we can all see what might be done in Lenham.
