A computer club for Lilley’s senior citizens is one of the ideas being considered after the village was given more than £1,000 worth of equipment.

The donation came through North Hertfordshire Homes’ Community in a Click campaign and comprises three HP Probook laptops, a Brother printer and Microsoft Office software.

Cassel Memorial Hall manager Steven Patmore said: “Lilley has a reasonably large elderly population, who missed out on growing up with computers. We’re looking to start a club which will help people learn to surf.”

Mr Patmore said the equipment would also come in useful for the twice-monthly mums and tots group: “We’ve just installed BT Broadband and the equipment is there for the community to use.”

Digital Champions will visit Community in a Click centres to help residents get to grips with the technology.
