It’s never too late to learn

If you’re baffled by computers or struggling to make the most of the internet, Surrey libraries have all the tools you need to learn how to take advantage of the online world – for free!

Even if you are completely new to computers or simply hoping to polish up on your skills and make the most of the internet, there are lots of online learning opportunities available through your local library.

You can join a free group session with other computer novices to learn basics such as how to use a keyboard and mouse, searching the internet and keeping in touch with your friends and family using email.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can start to take advantage of many other online resources available from Surrey libraries. You can learn plenty of useful new skills such as using the internet for leisure activities like shopping or researching your family history. If you’re beginning to search for a new job or going back to work after a break, there are online courses to help with job applications and refreshing work-related skills.

You can also make a one to one appointment with one of our Computer Buddies, who will be able to guide you as you learn.

Can you help other people use computers and get online?

We’re looking for volunteer Computer Buddies who can give up a small amount of time to provide support on a one to one basis. By volunteering with us you can:

  • Share your skills with others.
  • Engage in your local community.
  • Learn new skills and gain work experience.
  • Enjoy interesting and rewarding experiences while helping others.

Visit www.surreycc.gov.uk/libraries/learning or call 0300 200 1001 to find out more about online learning and to see how you can become a Computer Buddy. You can also follow @SurreyLibraries on Twitter.

Familiar to many who pass through the quaint village of Chobham The Four Horseshoes sits set back on Burrow Hill Green, a perfect picture postcard image any village would be proud of. Over recent years neglect has taken its toll on the tired building with peeling paintwork, rotten windows, pot holed car park, no heating.....

Surrey Wildlife Trust, Reptile Ramble

On Tuesday 30th April 2013, there will be an opportunity for a pleasant walk around Chobham Common looking for and learning about the elusive reptiles that inhabit this rare habitat. The Common is host to 5 out of our 6 native species and hopefully the smooth-snake will find its way here in the future.

Broadmoor Hospital Redevelopment

The West London Mental Health NHS Trust is planning to redevelop Broadmoor Hospital. As a result, they will need to create a new haul road off of the A3095, so all the construction vehicles can access the site with minimum disruption to the local community.

As many local Chobham residents and other commuters use this route, we have been asked to inform all readers of the Chobham community website of this work, so that commuters can allow additional time for their journey, or find an alternative route if necessary.

Flog It! comes to Guildford Cathedral

The popular BBC2 antiques programme Flog It! presented by Paul Martin, is coming to Guildford.

Flog It! – the major BBC antiques show is now on its twelfth series and regularly gets an audience of two million viewers each weekday.

Guildford Cathedral will be hosting the Flog It! Valuation Day. Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public are invited to bring along up to three antiques and collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an item should go forward for auction. If the item is chosen it is sold a few weeks later – often with the owner making a tidy sum. Everyone who goes along to the Valuation Day will receive a free valuation – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.
