Village Hall have been successful in a funding bid to develop their “Digital Village” and will sustain the Village Hall Internet connection beyond the current project and provide them with their own bank of laptops. We’re quite excit

Virtual, Job Shop – job search online, pointers and advice, CV’s etc – closely connected to …………..
Virtual School – The Digital Skills Network currently in development. Online support and learning on a range of subjects including how to run your virtual post office.
