Mayor has visited the town's UKOnline Centre to mark National
Volunteers Week this week.
volunteer-run service is based at Burnham's BAY Centre in Cassis
Close and holds regular computer training classes.
Martin Cox was shown how the group introduces visitors to the
Internet and explains how they can best use new technology.
sessions take place on Fridays between 11am and 1pm, or from 1.30pm
Cox said: "I was fascinated by the facilities on offer. The
Internet is a necessary part of modern life, and the atmosphere
is friendly and relaxing, an ideal learning environment."
Centre ICT co-ordinator Mike Lang agreed, adding: "At the
UKonline centre our volunteers cover anything that visitors need
to know, from learning how to switch on a laptop, to using email
and photo editing on an individual basis."
