Richard Burrett, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Corporate Relations, said: “The internet is something which a lot of us use in our everyday lives, whether it’s to video call family and friends, order our groceries or to catch up on a missed TV episode.
The County Council offers a lot of its services online. The Digital Tea Party is an opportunity for us to help our residents gain a greater understanding of what the internet has on offer for them.”
Along with Barclay’s Digital Eagles and O2, council staff will be on hand to answer your queries. Bring your own device or borrow one of ours, and we’ll help you with any problems or questions you might have over a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
Councillor Andrew Skudder, Cabinet member for Resources at Crawley Borough Council, said: “The internet is a wonderful resource but it can be daunting, especially if you are not accustomed to being online. The Digital Tea Party will be a great way of finding out how to get online, stay safe and get the most out of your tablet, smartphone or computer.”
Littlehampton Library held the first West Sussex Digital Tea Party in October and showed residents how to access local services on their mobile devices, and how to get savvy with social media, whilst staying safe online.
