There’s going to be a friendly, free, public drop-in day at The Windmill Centre in Torquay for people to find out how to use the internet to do things like book appointments, order prescriptions or leave feedback about local healthcare services.

It’s aimed at all those of people unaware of or unable to access health and social care resources on the web, helping them do it all simply at the click of a button.

Healthwatch Torbay are also available to answer any other IT enquiries and will be offering a FREE LUNCH to anyone who receives the free training on the day.

Apart from five years studying in Oxford I’ve lived most of my life in London where for many years I was Head of English in a prestigious girls’ school, but since taking early retirement and heading West to be nearer to my two daughters - settling in Torbay with my wife, Anna, in 2011 - I’ve worked in the voluntary sector. I took on the role of Service Provider, for example, promoting the Red Cross Torbay Navigators Project, while now I’m a Trustee and part of the Media Team for our local Healthwatch. I’m a governor at Torquay Academy, too, giving me the chance to stay up to date with what’s happening in the world of education. Other interests, aside from friends and family, include art and art history, reading - from contemporary fiction and poetry to Elizabethan/Jacobean literature - history, politics, cooking, walking, and music, in particular Bob Dylan, the blues, and early Elvis. I love writing, too, with one novel published so far – Elvis in Wonderland – and another, Who’s There?, that still needs plenty of work!
