Techy Tea Parties going strong

conrad-court-2Community Connections continues to help coordinate pop-up Techy Tea Parties across the borough as part of the Go On Lewisham initiative. Techy Tea Parties connect older people with volunteers in a fun atmosphere to help answer questions about the digital technology that older people have in their homes. Participants bring mobile phones and tablets, and volunteers offer teas and coffees, cakes and solutions to the participants’ IT problems.

These photos show a Techy Tea Party held at Conrad Court in north Deptford, which had a wonderful turnout of people who live at Conrad Court, local residents in the surrounding area, volunteers from the Pepys Resource Centre and My Complete Focus, and even a mini-Councillor surgery with Councillor David Michael! Topics that participants sought help with included: what can the internet be used for, youtube videos, online shopping, and how to connect to wifi.

For more information including where to find the next Techy Tea Party, please contact the Community Connections team on communityconnections@ageuklands.org.uk or phone 020 8314 3244. conrad-court-big-table
