ELDERLY people can have an hour of computer tuition free of charge.

Age Concern Bromley will run the sessions as part of the iT and Biscuits campaign which aims to make older people more technology literate.

Help and guidance will be on hand to explain in easy steps how to use the internet and e-mail, or shop and chat to others online.

Active Age centre manager, Barrie McKay, said "Many older people feel excluded from today's information technology. For example, many who read, watch TV or listen to the radio are unable to respond when invited to visit a website for further information. As well as meeting this need we hope the taster sessions in our friendly centres will allow older people to discover how the internet and e-mail can benefit their life".

The campaign runs from 8 to 12 September at Sussex Road, West Wickham and High Street, Chislehurst.

To book a session, call Chislehurst Active Age Centre on 020 8467 7751 or West Wickham Active Age Centre on 020 8777 5812.
