Techy tea clubs are social clubs, based in Lewisham, where people can come to learn internet skills. Students sit with volunteers called "buddies", who help them with whatever they would like to learn about or practice. Tea coffee and biscuits are provided.
Here are the clubs we are currently running (please click on the titles to find out more):
These clubs all run at different locations around Rushey Green, Catford and Forest Hill. Please also get in touch if you are interested in volunteering at one of the techy tea clubs.
Techy Tea clubs have been running since September 2014. They started as a joint project of My Complete Focus CIC and Damian Griffiths, the founder and director of CatBytes.
With a bit of funding and some practical support from the Lewisham Pensioners' Forum we ran our clubs first at The Point. After the funding ran out, we moved into the Saville Centre where the Lewisham Pensioners Forum were based at the beginning of 2015. We remained here until the Saville Centre was closed in April 2016. In the meantime, we were approached by GO-ON digital, to run "techy tea pop-up parties" at different venues round the borough. This helped us to locate a new permanent venue, Ewart Road clubouse (now Ewart Community Hall), where we now run our regular Tuesday club.
