I HAVE just finished a three-session computer and Internet instruction course as part of Hucknall and District University Of The Third Age Group (U3A).
It was given by some pupils from Holgate Comprehensive School in the town and feel I must say how wonderful I found it.
They were so patient and helpful to an oldie like me. They gave me clear and simple instructions and boosted my confidence in using the computer.
The laptops we used were bought with money they had won from a competition that asked for a project designed to bridge the gap between young and old. As I walked through the school to the computer room, all the pupils I met were very courteous and polite.
Young people today seem to make the headlines for misbehaviour, but seldom have good reports. This is a small effort on my behalf to redress the balance.
