Seniors in the Library 01

At the Seniors' Day (running from 10.30am-4pm at Haddenham Community Library) there will be information on many services aimed at senior members of the community. Some specialist providers will also be coming in to advertise their services.

There will be four live presentations:

At 10:45am and 11:45am, Keith Milmer will be demonstrating the use use of personal computers and the internet for those who have never used these technologies. (There will also be a chance to "have a go" on the Library's computers — all free of charge, of course, but you'll need to book in advance or come back on another day)

At 2pm, John Brandis will be describing the aims and benefits of Haddenham U3A — an organisation specifically aimed at older members of the community who want to go on exploring new interests and activities

At 3pm, Guy Buckingham, a local historian with a special interest in Haddenham Airfield and old cars, will be making a presentation
