Live life in the Fastlane (of the information superhighway) with Digital Eagles
From September 27, Barclays Digital Eagles are swooping into The Royal Oak and Castle pub in Pevensey to offer Wealden residents a FREE seven week course in the benefits of using the internet as well as a chance to learn some basic online skills.
“After the tremendous success of the previous Digital Eagles courses in Wealden I’m delighted that they are returning to offer their advice and guidance from The Royal Oak and Castle in Pevensey,” said Cllr Roy Galley, Cabinet Member for Economic Development. “I encourage all Wealden residents who would benefit to come along to the course and develop and improve their computer skills.”
“I’m pleased that The Royal Oak and Castle can host the Barclays Digital Eagles and offer something new to the local community. There will be free tea, coffee and cake on offer as well as our usual friendly welcome and atmosphere. We look forward to seeing some new faces there,” said Debby Fitton, Licensee at The Royal Oak and Castle.
The course will run every Tuesday from 9:30am-11:00am from September 27. The topics covered are:

The course is free of charge with no need to book. Everybody who wants to take part just needs to bring their own device – laptop, tablet, iPad, iPhone, android mobile phone – to the lessons.
Digital Eagles are specially trained Barclays staff who provide a wealth of technology related knowledge to customers and colleagues across the country.
The digital skills course is delivered as part of Wealden District Council’s Pub is The Hub scheme to support rural public houses in finding out how, by delivering or hosting services that the local community needs, they can bring in extra customers and strengthen the role of the pub as the centre of rural communities.
