Digital event to help more communities in south Somerset get connected

SSVCAA free event this April hosted by the South Somerset Association for Voluntary and Community Action (SSVCA) will help many more communities in south Somerset get better connected through the effective use of digital tools.

The ‘Connected Communities’ event, which is supported by South Somerset District Council and a range of other organisation, is aimed at village hall committees, parish councils and community groups.

If you would like to better understand digital, seek strategies for supporting vulnerable members of your community, get help with your digital gadgets or understand how social media can help you make the most of the internet, this event is for you.

Hosted on Thursday 28 April from 3.30pm until 6.30pm at Compton Dundon Village Hall, this event will be an exciting opportunity to increase your knowledge of the use of digital tools.

Councillor Angie Singleton, Portfolio Holder for Strategic Planning said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for communities and key players within those communities to learn more about what digital has to offer. The digital world is constantly evolving and there are always new opportunities coming to the forefront of life. With the help of organisations such as South Somerset District Council and its many partners this event will help everyone better understand the benefits that being a connected community can bring.”

Practical help will also be on hand from Cosmic, Get up to Speed, Barclays Digital Eagles, Yarlington Housing Group, Yeovil College, the Symphony Programme and South Somerset District Council.
