  Open Meeting  21 August  Kelston community Centre 10 am

Our guest speaker will be a lady who will explain the finer details of Internet Banking. Even if you are already using Internet Banking as many of our members  do, it is always useful to keep up with the latest security and scams that we need to avoid.
Feel free to bring a friend, they do not have to be a member and are always welcome.


For current members of SeniorNet we have new name cards that have a barcode printed on them that can be scanned when purchasing goods from Noel Leaming.

We get a percentage of the cost  of goods sold through this company which goes towards running SeniorNet around the country. We therefore need to make sure that every sale is charged as such and not just put on the Gold Card which has been happening.  


We will have the cards at the Learning Centre in the Henderson RSA and they can be picked up on our Help Days on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. The 24th is our next one.

SeniorNet is not currently getting funding from the Government so your support with this is very much appreciated.
