Laptops, Phones and Tablets sorted – FREE! Whatever the technology, this local community group will try to help!

The West Fleetwood Computer Clinic, an initiative of Emmanuel Church West, has handled all kinds of technologies in its first five years of operation. Some clients now make it a regular date!

Whether it’s a virus riddled Laptop, a Tablet which has lost its programs and music or a phone which won’t connect to the internet, they try to help and it’s all FREE!

‘Not only can we sort out many technical issues, we also re-purpose older, donated, equipment for community use,’ said Dave Carlos who leads the team. ‘We never know what kind of issues will walk through the door but we try to help everyone, sometimes it takes several days to find an answer, but we haven’t had a failure yet!’

‘We also offer training for those who need a little help. One client wanted to save videos from YouTube for talks he was giving to community groups. Other wanted to know how to get their music onto their tablets. We don’t know everything but we usually know where to look to find an answer.’

Hosted at the Rossall Tavern, by kind permission of the landlords, the Clinic is completely free to everyone. ‘We have been offered payment but we have asked folk to make a donation to a charity instead’ said Dave. ‘We do this to support the local community and as “The church which meets in the Pub”, this is the ideal location for us.’

The Clinic meets regularly on Monday nights starting at 7:30pm. The next dates are: 1, 15 & 29 April, 13 May, 3 & 17 June, 1, 15 & 29 July, 12 August, 2, 16 & 30 September, 14 & 28 October, 11 & 25 November, 9 December, 6 January 2020.
