Join the Senior Media group

16 February 2017

The Connect Hackney Senior Media group is recruiting for new members.

Are you aged 50 or over? Would you like to develop your computer skills and learn photography, interviewing and writing skills? Then sign up as a member of the Connect Hackney Senior Media Group.

The group is made up of a friendly group of local older residents who produce content for the Connect Hackney website and for the magazine – Hackney Senior.

This includes researching stories, taking photographs and interviewing people and writing articles. No previous experience is needed as full training is provided.

Group member Laurie Allen comments: ‘I so enjoyed my learning experience via the Senior Media group. Quality of support was immense. Life is a learning experience and I thank you greatly to be given this first class opportunity’.

As well as learning and producing content, the project is also about socializing and having fun.  Tea breaks and biscuits offer plenty of opportunity to meet new Hackney residents and to get to know each other.

If you are enthusiastic about computers and telling stories and want to get out and socialise, then this is the project for you. We meet twice per week in Haggerston – come and join us!
