  1. Locals confused about computers or who are a novice with the net might be interested in a free beginners computer course for residents of West Kingsdown who are over the age of 50.

    The six week course is free and focuses on basics such as using the internet, word processing and sending e-mails. The course begins on February 1 and sessions runs from 2pm to 3:30pm at West Kingsdown Primary School.

    This course is funded by Sevenoaks District Council’s Safety Partnership and the training is delivered by year six pupils at West Kingsdown Primary School, supervised by IT Tutor Tony Fishpool. The issue of the gap between young and older people came from the West Kingsdown PACT (Partners & Communities Together) Panel where it was identified that it would be beneficial to have an intergenerational project. The PACT Panel meetings are public meetings for residents to raise community safety issues and work with District Council, Police and Parish Councils to resolve them. The next meeting is on Tuesday 12 February, 7pm at the Old School Hall and is open to all residents.

    The Council's member for Community Wellbeing Cllr Pat Bosley said,
    Places are limited to only 12 people per course and must be booked in advance. To find out more or register with Sevenoaks District Council by calling 01732 227000 or asking someone to e-mail community.safety@sevenoaks.gov.uk
