Astons Online aims to encourage people to be confident and safe users of the Internet and on-line services.
Everyone from nearby villages of Blewbury, Chilton, Cholsey, Goring, North & South Moreton, Streatley and Upton are welcome at our free-of-charge monthly drop-in workshops.
Drop-in workshops are held in Astons Village Hall on the third Tuesday of each month between 10 am and 12 noon coinciding with the weekly Astons Cafe. Our volunteer tutors welcome all kinds of computer and user problems at the workshops where issues are assessed, analysed and, mostly, solved on the spot. We can also help with formal training courses, some of which are free.
The workshops' atmosphere is always friendly, engaging and inclusive. At every workshop from February 2018 there's a 10 minute talk on a current user topic at 10:30 with ample time for questions.
