HELP is at hand for Keighley people seeking to start using the web.

Activities are being held in the town as part of Get Online Week.

Airedale Enterprise Services (AES) will be on board a community bus at Surrey Street, Stockbridge, next Wednesday, October 17, between 1pm and 3pm, offering free support and advice.

And sessions are being held at the AES premises in Sunderland Street on Thursday, October 18, from 10am to noon and 1pm to 3pm.

The activities are among hundreds of community initiatives taking place nationally as part of Get Online Week.

Main aim of the campaign is to encourage people to carry out online just one task they would normally perform in a shop or bank, at a GP surgery or chemist, or over the phone.

AES chief executive officer, Wendy Spencer, said: “More people than you probably think still don’t use the internet at all, and we’re here to help.

“But even if you send the odd e-mail, use Facebook or read the news on your phone, you could still be missing out on so much.

“Getting the most out of the internet doesn’t have to be scary.

“Performing just one new task online is all you need to do to get started. Come along to our event and we can help you do just that!

“There’ll be lots of friendly support.

“People can call 01535 607775 to find out more, or just pop in and see what’s happening. The more the merrier and everyone’s welcome!”
