The latest Newsletter from Connecting Cheshire is available to download here.

In this month's edition, Connecting Cheshire announces the latest Communities to benefit the roll-out of fibre broadband in their area.

Fibre Launch

They include Audlem, as well as Whitegate and Marton, Manley, Helsby, Culcheth and Prestbury.

Also of interest is that the first Digital Learning Champion training day was held in a very snowy Macclesfield as the picture shows! Our own Co-Ed and Digital Champion Phil Miles was the only member present from West Cheshire, the remainder were from East Cheshire which is putting a lot of effort into offering computer skills especially for the elder generation.


At the moment the GoOnline charity is carrying out computer learning sessions in the Community Centre, Phil is hoping to join the team soon.

If you, or an organisation you are involved in, is looking for training in computer skills, then either contact GoOnline or contact your local library as they have a similar scheme called IT Buddy but as yet it is not available in Tarvin!
