Hundreds of local people brought along their laptops, tablets and smart phones as part of Littlehampton Library’s first ever Digital Tea Party.
They learned about top tips on how to access local services on their mobile devices, staying safe online and how to get savvy with social media.
More than 100 people attended the event last Thursday (6 October).
The event was held during National Customer Service Week and the tea party was hosted by experts from West Sussex County Council, Arun District Council, Barclays Digital Eagles and O2.
Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “What a successful event – I was delighted to see how many people popped in for some advice. We welcomed more than 300 people, all of whom had their questions answered and left with valuable advice, information and top tech tips.”
Bob Lanzer, Cabinet Member for Corporate Relations, said “Thank you to our officers and partners who came together to host the event and for making it such a success.”
The event proved so popular that there are plans to host others across West Sussex. The next one is being planned to take place in Crawley Library, date to be confirmed.
