Online roadshow for Brechin

A nationwide road show to get people in Scotland online is set to roll in to Brechin on Wednesday, April 22.

The Scottish Government’s Let’s Get On team will be at the Parkview Bowling Club from 2 to 4 p.m. offering free, informal, drop-in sessions on how to get online and the benefits the internet can bring.

The roadshow is set to visit 75 towns and cities in a bid to get people online.

Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities Keith Brown said: “We want everyone in Scotland to enjoy the benefits of being online.

“The Let’s Get On road show will get into the very heart of communities across Scotland, offering people the opportunity to take the first step in getting online and highlighting the many benefits. The internet can bring huge advantages to people’s lives, whether it’s finding a job or keeping in touch with friends and family and getting connected can save people time and money.

“Let’s Get On supports our digital world class 2020 vision by bringing technology to life for people. It will make people’s lives easier and help the Scottish Government achieve its goal of a more connected, fairer, wealthier and smarter digital Scotland.”

The Let’s Get On road show is supported by an information line which people can call on 0300 004 1000 and find out where and when their nearest session is, as well as more about other learning centres and courses in their local area which offer help and support to get connected.

Those online who know friends or family that would benefit from information about how to get online, should visit and find out how to help.
