‘Get Online’ week is back!

Libraries in Pembrokeshire will be holding a variety of events as part of the national campaign.

Whether you’re looking for help making better use of the internet to find work or save money, or if you’d like support getting a friend or family member online, there’ll be an event near you.

Activities include ‘IT and Tea Gadget Drop-in Sessions’, a one-off family history workshop, and activities for children.

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
