Silver Surfers' Day is a national event running since 2002 offering taster sessions encouraging the over-fifties to use the Internet.
We will be bringing computers to Manor Gardens Allotments with a wireless link to the Internet and the World Wide Web, and experienced computer tutors will be on hand to assist participants. The afternoon of Friday 25th May will be an opportunity for those without Internet access to see something of the online campaign to save Manor Gardens Allotments, and other campaigns around the Olympics site, the work of Hackney Marsh Users Group, gardening websites, and more.
Present or former allotmenteers and anyone having memories of times past at MGA are asked to bring any photographs they have to be scanned into digital format and placed onto a website. Original photos will be returned undamaged immediately after scanning.
Anyone over fifty is welcome. Younger relatives and friends only if accompanied by an over-fifty year-old please.
For more information call 07956 890825
