The Hill Walks take place over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend, 29th / 31st May, with walks of 3, 6, 11 and 17 miles, as well as various other events including an Open Gardens Trail the weekend before.

Refreshment stops on the Gardens Trail and the shorter walks are an important feature! Last year Trefonen Hill Walks raised £7000. For more information contact www.trefonen-hillwalk.com

It has taken us longer than we had hoped, but at last our new one-stop website www.shropshire-disability.net is live, and already we’ve received lots of compliments on what a good site it is. The creation of the website has been a joint project between ClearDesign, who did all the structure and layout, and members of Shropshire Disability Network, who have created and entered all the pages for over 160 organisations that appear in our database.

On 4th February Carl from ClearDesign ran a training workshop for SDN volunteers, and as you can see from the photo, we got a lot out of the session.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about our website – and let us know if you find any problems! Please also send us News items for inclusion.

FREE Computer Training

As part of its ongoing programme to make IT and computers accessible to all, the government has set up a free online computer training service called myguide.

Myguide is a website designed to help people take their first steps with computers and the internet. Registered users get access to an easy-to-use email system and a wide range of online courses.

So why not give it a try? Paste http://www.myguide.gov.uk/myguide/MyguideHome.do into the address bar (at very top of screen) on your internet. And if you don’t have a computer, or are not online yet, use the computer in the library (also free) or in the Shropshire village Broadplaces (a small charge is made).
