Computer Friendly Delivers Laptops to Margaret Wix Primary School

On 3rd December 2021, Tony Bourke Chairman of Computer Friendly was delighted to deliver laptops to Margaret Wix Primary School in St. Albans. The Headteacher Claire Gibbs had made a request to help fund the equipment needed to deliver their computing curriculum. Claire was absolutely thrilled when Tony was able to provide 15 Computer Friendly refurbished machines.

Computer Friendly Drop-Ins Feedback

When Computer Friendly Drop-Ins restarted as Covid restrictions were lifted, we got some excellent feedback from our visitors:

I just want to send some feedback re my booked session this morning.
It was EXCELLENT and I thank  Carol Brazier for her kindness and patience with my problems. She certainly solved 18 months of confusion!
Many thanks,
Jill Tuddenham

PS there was also a gentleman there who also helped with some issues but I am afraid I did not register his name. Thank you to him too.

Following 18 months of enforced lockdown, we opened ready to help with addressing any problems.  Unfortunately owing to the increasing infection rates and Omicron uncertainty we have again suspended all face-to-face Drop-Ins until further notice.

Bookable Drop-Ins have started again!
