Residents of sheltered housing in Abergele have received a masterclass boosting their online skills and safety.

Barclays has deployed their Digital Eagles to Pentre Mawr, with experts from the bank helping residents to pick up tips on using the latest technology.

Louise Blackwell, community development officer for Clwyd Alyn Housing Association said:“We’re delighted that Rhys Scarll and Bernadette Brittles from Barclays Bank was able to join residents at Pentre Mawr in Abergele to host a Digital Eagles friendly training workshop.”

“We’ve had some great feedback from the residents who attend who really appreciated the friendly expert help covering a wide range of queries. The sessions were able to help those who are new to digital technology s well as more advanced users who want to know more about how to stay safe online, or how to increase the memory capacity of their devices.

“As well as thanking the Barclays Digital Eagles Team we’d like to congratulate the residents for embracing the opportunity, and also say a big thank you to scheme warden, Alison Pring, for helping arrange the session.”
