Hawkinge villagers, both young and old took advantage of the brand
new facilities at the Hawkinge IT Café in the community centre On
Thursday (19 June).


 








Mable Mambawe of Dragon Fly Way went along to the open day and took
the opportunity to update her CV and do some job searches. Mable
said, “The IT Café is lovely, it’s a great idea and very
convenient”.



Others visited to trace their family tree, bid for bargains on Ebay,
search for quotes for cheap car insurance, reply to emails and to
check out some video clips on Youtube.



Some who were new to the world of IT took the opportunity to ask
about the taster sessions and certified courses that are available




On Tuesday 24 June at 12.45 the Café will be opening its doors to
the families of fifty Gurkha soldiers, based at Shorncliffe
Barracks, but living in Hawkinge. The special session will be a
chance for the families to see what the IT café can offer for both
recreation and personal development.



It can accommodate up to 9 people at a time and has a fast Internet
access where people can surf the net and log in to all the popular
websites.



The facilities are free to use and are open on Tuesdays from 1.30 to
5.30 and Thursdays from 3.00 to 7.00. People of all ages are welcome
to call in and make use of the computers.



On Mondays between 9.30 and 4.00 you can enrol in taster sessions
and certified courses and some charges might apply.



If you want any information about the IT Café then just pop along
and have an informal chat or you can call Romney Resource Centre on
01797 367455.
