Meet DIANE and get online

 
People visiting a church café in Childwall will be helped to get online at its latest community event.

The Friday Café at St David’s Church which was set up using some of the Neighbourhood Fund allocation for local councillors Ruth Hirschfield,Frank Hont and Jeremy Wolfson has run successfully for more than two years and has introduced a monthly community event on the first Friday of each month.

Digital Awareness will be the focus of the latest event on 3 July (10am to noon)

Councillor Hirschfield, said: “As more information goes online and we are increasingly expected to bank, shop, book and communicate with government agencies using the Internet it is important that everybody becomes digitally aware and this event will help anybody who needs advice in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.”

The main attraction will be DIANE, a large motorhome, kitted out to help residents This innovative approach is provided by Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH)

Councillor Hirschfield added; “You will be able to ask questions and get help about anything digital.

“The community events have proved very popular and we are always looking for suggestions for topics which will be helpful to local people.”

Last month’s community event which focused on health issues proved to be popular with more than 60 people attending and taking part in exercises as well as receiving advice and information.
