Plans are being made to create a computer facility at Aberporth Village Hall.

The scheme - which would include tuition and internet access - is aimed at elderly people who are not yet computer literate.

“The project's aim is to combat digital exclusion, a universal problem affecting 19% of the population. The worst affected group is the elderly who are part of the “Before the Computer” generation. Many people cannot afford a computer or broadband.

Increasingly many services are only available online making the situation even worse," said Aberporth village hall secretary Anne Straker.

A grant application is being submitted to fund the scheme - and feedback is needed from local residents. Bright yellow questionnaires are being distributed throughout the village and are also available from London House Stores, Penrhyn Pharmacy, the Country Market (Tuesday mornings) in Aberporth, Londis in Parcllyn, Crosslyn Garage in Blaenannerch and Blaenporth Church (Wednesday mornings).

The questionnaires must be returned to one of the above locations by 30th September.
