Digital Buddies Weekly Meeting
Every Friday 11am
Venue: Storyhouse Kitchen
Do you need some help with technology that won’t behave? Then come and ask the Digital Buddies at the Storyhouse, every Friday at 11am.

This may be as simple as opening an email account, to problems with a device. We help our clients use various apps or software, solve problems, like logging in, using Facebook or other social media. Sometimes clients need help with printing, or setting up video and audio device

Our experts, we call them Buddies, come from commerce and education, and have a wide range of experience to rely on. They volunteer their help every week to help our community, and because they enjoy a challenge. There is no charge for the help. Over the years we have helped 100s of people in the community on a one-to-one basis from our experienced volunteers.
The group meets every Friday at the StoryHouse, Kitchen at 11.00 to 12.30. We also deliver an online Zoom presentation on a topic of interest to the target group. The weekly group presentations are delivered over Zoom, clients subscribe their email address and receive an emailed link to enter the Zoom room. The presentations offer insights into ways to use popular apps, or websites or email, often ways to make usage easier and better.

Digital Buddies first started at the Storyhouse, when it opened in 2017. The not-for-profit Social Enterprise helps older people in the community of Chester, and area, with help using technology.

Christmas Craft Club
Monday 27 November 2023
Deewater Grange, 92 Chester Road, CH3 6BS
Snow is falling, children are playing – and a Chester care home is opening its doors to help combat loneliness in the community this festive season.

On Monday 27th November, from 2.30pm-4pm, Care UK’s Deewater Grange, on Chester Road, is helping members of the community to get into the festive spirit by joining residents and team members for a special Christmas Craft Club.

Studies have shown that almost 1.5 million older people feel lonelier at Christmas than any other time of year*. To help tackle loneliness, Care UK has launched its Care to Share initiative, designed to support older people through the festive season.

More than 100 Care UK homes nationwide will be taking part to give older members of the community a safe and sociable space where they can enjoy some festive fun and good company – whether it’s singing along to Christmas carols or watching a Christmas movie with a mince pie.

At Deewater Grange, the team have been hard at work brushing up on their creative skills ahead of their crafting demonstration to inspire the Christmas Craft Club attendees, which will include creating a Christmas wreath. On the day, those joining will also be treated to Yuletide treats, specially prepared by the home’s chef.

Sally Cooper, Home Manager at Deewater Grange, added: “Here at Deewater Grange, we’re passionate about playing an active role in our community, so we’re delighted so be opening our doors for our Christmas Craft Club.

“We know December can be a difficult month for many, so this is a wonderful chance to bring people together this Christmas and a great opportunity for everyone to build new friendships – as well as reminisce over fond festive memories.

“We’d like to invite our neighbours to book their place at our special event – this is certainly an event yule not want to miss!”
