A NEW weekly free pop-up Digital Hub is being launched in Bridgwater this week.

Set up by Bridgwater’s Alex Rowland of Your IT Now, the new hub will launch on Thursday, June 6 at noon in St Mary’s Church.

The Hub is aiming to help people with learning disabilities gain valuable digital skills to help them get more from life.

Alex will be on hand to help people with any questions they may have around using or setting up smartphones, tablets, laptops or other devices and will be able to advise and help people learn to use the internet and social media safely.

Mr Rowland said: “For many people with Learning Disabilities the ability to use the internet and social media can be life changing, enabling them to become more involved with friends, family and their local communities , sometimes though it can also be a scary place if your not sure with how to use it safely.

“I hope this pop-up hub will help address that and give them valuable safety skills.”

The hub will run weekly from St Marys Church between noon and 2pm.
