Mid Sussex Older People Council (MSOPC) held it’s first successful IT drop-in session on Monday November 2 at Ardingly College. The sessions will continue weekly until and including 7 December.

Ten people turned up for one-to-one help provided by students in Ardingly College: to choose a tablet, how to shop on line, send emails, share and store phones, keep in touch with friends and family via Skype, Facebook and Whatsapp and much, much more!
