if you are volunteering for this event and you are not a member of Norfolk library, they have asked me to say could you get there half an hour before we start.
The library will be closed but they should let you in.
We may be able to arrange transport but will know for sure by the end of this month.

Reminder if you need transport then please let us know.


A lady phoned me this afternoon, to say she has a laptop, but is afraid to switch it on.

She is coming to our event next week.

I am very touched by the amount of members that have said they will be coming to our event tomorrow.
I am getting a little nervous about the event.

Now if you aren't able to join us, I know you will be thinking of us, because that gives us a lot of support and help.
We will try and take lots of photos to make sure you are involved.

Don't forget the forum is open for you as is the 24 hour chat room, which we sincerely hope you will enjoy.  It will be a rush to do the paper in the morning, but I will try.
thank you once again, for your support and care.

We had a really good morning at the Library, we helped a couple of ladies who were really scared of doing anything with a computer, one didn't even know how to turn one on, but I think we we have helped them enough to try on their own computers at home.

Liz took some photo's

We had 20 people attend.
I had Liz come round for lunch and then Barry and Irene called for tea in the afternoon.

Will be in touch later to tell you more.

The event was held at Hellesdon library…

Image

whose staff were most helpful, providing table, chairs and coffee/tea…

Image

…and had pre-booked four computers for us to use to help Carers get online …

Image

Image


The event was well-attended with 16 to 20 people coming in… either for a chat, coffee, or hands on help to learn how to do e-mail, online shopping etc

Image

Image

The library staff had also very kindly arranged some reminiscence kits that can be loaned out to library members, and that come in very handy suitcases

Image

You can access a factsheet that explains better by clicking on this link, then clicking on the text “Reminisence Kits” that is underlined.

Thank you Liz for putting these photos on for us.  
Annie we had to take some photos with people looking away because they will go to Springon Line and we have to be careful.

The head of Norfolk Carers Council came and she had a good time.
The library did us proud and went to a lot of trouble for us.
They want us to make it a regular event.
I will go to the meeting at County Hall next week and suggest that the paid workers take over to get more carers on the internet.
There is such a need, and Mo and Liz and Myrna and others had great patience helping people today.  
Barry took Irene out to the seaside for the day, and they had fish and chips at Wells.

The carers  arrived looking nervous and went away with big smiles on their faces, so we must have done something right.
With thanks to everyone who took part, and thank you to the members who were unable to attend and kept the forum ticking over.
thank you

If you don't live in Norfolk, I hope you haven't felt left out.
Please remember that Irene was not from Norfolk and like the many people who have visited us here in Norfolk over many years, we have done our best to make the visit an enjoyable one.

You never know, if you come to Norfolk, then it will be your turn, and will find out about the care and friendship you will have from our local members, because they really do care about YOU and Chill4us in a quiet but caring way.

I  have to give feedback to the library on what you got from the event.

I have heard from one of the carers.

I don't have time to go on the internet, but it was grand to come and meet other carers to talk about the net and bring my caree.
