Brighton Computer Club

Our club purpose: People Helping People is assisting each other to understand our computers, and to help those of us who get in trouble now and then. You will find that the meetings are the glue that holds us together. We try to structure the meetings with minimum emphasis placed on administration and maximum effort placed on education and help. We endeavour to have a presentation on a popular subject in the first half, a social break, then a session of Questions and Answers.

The executive monitors the world of automation in between meetings and keeps the membership up to date with targeted emails concerning breaking news that could affect us. New members and visitors are always welcome to attend our meetings. All our meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 9:30am, at the King Edward Park Community Centre, 75 Elizabeth St., Brighton.
