Alcester Town Council Update - December 23/January 24

Community Shed

Alcester Town Council is exploring the opportunity to repurpose the old squash courts behind the Greig Hall to create a Community Shed. Residents will be aware of the success of the monthly Repair Cafe and this would give the café a permanent home. In addition, it would provide a safe space for members of the community to make and mend along the lines of Men's Sheds which have become popular nationally. Further updates will be provided when the work has been assessed and costs are known.

Are you Well Connected?

There are many advantages of being able to use computers and the internet, from connecting with family and friends, to shopping for groceries. Yet many people are missing out. If you would like to make the most of the internet, find out about WhatsApp or learn how to download apps, come along to our relaxed and friendly Well Connected Computer Group, meeting every Wednesday morning, 9.30am – 11am at the Alcester Unionist Club, High Street, Alcester. Free to attend and everyone is welcome, whether you are new to technology or more advanced.
