Computer Course

If you thought chips and bytes were something you got at a café – think again!

This year, we’d like to offer a selection of useful computer courses – but we thought we’d ask you, rather that tell you, what the courses are.

All the courses are open to any age group – it is a myth that only ‘old people’ don’t know how to use computers!

The Centre is equipped with laptops and the internet, or if you have a laptop of your own, you can simply use that – whatever suits you best.

We aim to keep prices around £5 per session, with a course lasting for around 6 sessions.

General News Hemyock WI - Come And Join Us

Hemyock WI is a thriving group of like minded women who meet for social and educational purposes on the first Tuesday of every month at 7.30 in the Forbes Lounge of the Parish Hall.   We have a varied and interesting programme with something for everyone.   Look at the calendar for details of our meetings.

Each month there are two competitions.  All entries are items which we already have in our homes, (we are all busy  people) and the winner is chosen by our speaker.  The second competition is for flower of the month.  (hastily picked from the garden on the way to the meeting usually!!) The money collected is sent to the ACCW charity annually.

After the speaker, we have refreshments, a fun quiz set by Brenda  and a chance to talk to other members.  Speakers have often remarked on the friendliness of our group so why don't you come along and give us a try.  Ring Lynn Taylor on 01823 680104 for more information or to arrange to be picked up from your home if necessary.

This website, hemyock.org, is a community-run website for local people to advertise their forthcoming events and achievements.  It was designed as a central place where people don't have to search specifically for things and avoid the problems that local groups have in getting people to visit isolated websites.  We get about 200 people visiting per day, or 6000 a month.
