1. GETTING ONLINE – We have identified a number of courses around Shropshire which offer a variety of subjects, from learning how to switch on a computer, operate a mouse, set up an e-mail address, surf the net, to more advanced courses using word processing, spreadsheets and design software. We will do our best to work with and encourage suppliers to offer these courses free of charge, however some are chargeable, but this is easy to see as we have divided it into two sections.
2. ADVICE – this section tells you where to go for advice and gives links to other websites informing you of NHS Dentists, hospitals, bus time tables, train timetables, out of hours Pharmacies and a whole host of other useful information.
3. SOCIAL – This is where we encourage you to actively take part. You will see a host of activities in the Shropshire area to help you get out the house, make new friends and take on a new hobby. If you know of an event locally that you think will be of interest to our website users, please get in touch and we will try and give you a listing.
4. SERVICE – We are encouraging local businesses to provide discounts for over 50′s. Whether that be a coffee shop who are offering a free cake with the coffee, a restaurant offering an early bird discount rate or a builder who is offering 10 % discount off the final quoted price. For any local business offering a genuine discount via our printable vouchers, we aim to provide free advertising for them. For all other businesses that are not in a position to offer a discount, there will still be an opportunity for them to advertise at competitive rates. So if you are a local business and would like to be listed please make contact.
