Getting online is so much easier thanks to a new initiative at Rasen Hub, with two digital champions on hand to give plenty of help and advice.

The Union Street community building has been installed with three new computers too, thanks to funding from the European Social Fund.

The get online project is being run through partnership with West Lindsey District Council and Community Lincs.

And project co-ordinator Frances Roddis was on hand to welcome The Hub’s two volunteer digital champions - Carole Dearden and Nick Alexander.

“The Hub is an ideal location for this project,” said Frances.

“We are working with Community Lincs to set up computer hubs across West Lindsey and have 15 so far, some in village halls.

“The aim is that everyone living in West Lindsey will have easy access to get online somewhere for free.

“Carole and Nick will be here at The Hub on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, from 10.30am to 12 noon, to help anyone who needs it to use the computers.”

For more information on the project contact Frances on 01427 676513 or email frances.roddis@west-lindsey.gov.uk.

And other budding volunteers can find their niche thanks to the launch of a new Access Point at Rasen Hub today, Wednesday.

Teams from Voluntary Centre Services will be hosting the free launch event from 12.30pm, with a lunchtime volunteering talk about the benefits of volunteering and local opportunities from 1pm.

Anyone considering volunteering, or who has a success story to share, is invited.

Local businesses are invited to join the event at 2.30pm when the advice team will be talking about ways to become more involved in the local community through Voluntary Centre Services’ Employer Supported Volunteering.

The short talk entitled “What volunteering means for your business” looks at some of the successful projects already completed by Lincolnshire businesses and discusses volunteering as an opportunity to raise awareness for your company.
