Aldwyn Place gets online

Surfs Up

Residents at Aldwyn Place, Englefield Green were delighted to be awarded grants totalling £10,550 by the Big Lottery Fund and Hanover’s own community grant programme, Greenshoots.

The funding has enabled them to purchase 20 refurbished laptops and has covered broadband provision to the estate for the next two years. A 12-week training course plus ten hours of private tuition was also provided by We Are Digital.

One of the first residents to benefit from the lessons was 88-year-old Arnold Philips, who says: ‘I really enjoyed my starter session and have been emailing friends and family, as well as watching history documentaries on YouTube. It also helped me and the other residents here to socialise a lot more. 

‘I would like to say a special thanks to Greenshoots, the Big Lottery Fund, We Are Digital and our estate manager, who have made these lessons possible.’
