Welcome to the new website for the re-established Helston & District Computer Club.
To gain access to the main part of this website you need to be a member of the The Club. Membership is free to all residents of Helston and the surrounding District. To become a member just click on "Register" at the bottom of the Login Form.
The Club was created in 2006 in the old Community Centre in Penrose Road but slipped into almost obscurity with the closing and subsequent sale of the building. A few core members have stayed in touch since and it occurred to me that we could resurrect the club on an electronic basis.
With the recent advent of social networking sites it has become quite normal for whole communities to get together via the internet so what better way for a computer club to proceed.
I have set up this website with the Joomla Content Management System that allows for complete user participation. We can add as much new content on as many computer and IT related subjects as we wish. There is a Contact Us page up and running for members to use for any questions, queries or comments they may have and I have integrated a very robust Forum where questions can be asked and comments made and any member can join in the discussion. This is a brilliant way of solving your computer problems as there is bound to be another member who can and is willing to spend a little time helping you. That's what it's all about, helping each other.
So often nowadays if you put a question on one of the many big Forums on the internet you get a reply that you don't understand because the answer is given in "techie" speak so you don't bother to go back to that Forum. Here we only use plain English and where necessary use copious illustrations to explain a point (A picture is worth a thousand words etc).
So Register for membership and then browse the site. If there are any aspects of computing that you would like to see covered on the website just forward your ideas via the Contact Us page.
There are no membership fees, there is no cost involved at all. All help is offered completely free of charge. There are no adverts on the site and no annoying pop ups to distract you.
Just one proviso.
All help and advice is given in good faith but we must point out that no responsibility can be accepted for any problems that may occur when using that help or advice as we have, of course, no control over how that advice is used.
