Elaine Bostock, Cath Learmonth, Teresa Clarke and Susan Jones learnt plenty at their first class with Tania Butcher during Seniors Week.

‘We started with very basic information and progressed to learning about apps to keep connected to friends and family,’ co-ordinator Tania said.

‘Elaine signed up to Tapestry, an app designed for seniors.

‘Cath wished she’d had lessons when she first got her iPad a year ago as she’s had to learn on her own and it’s taken so much time. She said it was better learning with others.’

Organisers hope to include speech and memory-based games.
