Pensioners at a Sheltered Housing Scheme in Abergele are proving that age is no barrier to joining the computer generation. After a little expert help and a great deal of enthusiasm the residents at Pentre Mawr have become digital dynamos discovering a whole new world of on-line activities.


“Even before a learning session with Jen Bailey, the Digital Inclusion Officer, our residents were raring to go with her help we’ve really embraced the opportunity,” said Alison Pring, Warden at the scheme, which is managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association.



“The ability to down load music and books, and to shop on-line has opened up a whole new world. Now we’re also discovering that using the internet is a great way to keep in touch with old friends, and make many new ones too,” said Alison Pring, Pentre Mawr Warden.


“We’re not just silver surfers here – we’re getting to be Golden Googlers too!” she added.
