SILVER SURFERS' DAY - 21 May 2004

Silver Surfers' Day is a series of events that will be held across the UK on
Friday 21 May 2004 as part of Adult Learners' Week. It aims to give older
people in the UK, who have not previously used a computer, a 'taste' of what
email and the Internet are all about.

The Silver Surfers' Day initiative is managed by an organisation called
Hairnet UK Ltd - a specialist IT training company that focuses on enabling
the 'hard to reach' from Britain's elderly population, and those lacking
confidence or experience in information literacy, to use IT.

Hairnet UK Ltd have been co-ordinating the national Silver Surfers' Day
programme since 2002 and are very keen to use more museums, libraries and
archives as venues for hosting these events, so if you work for an
organisation that is interested in supporting this initiative, please log on
to the Silver Surfers' Day website at www.silversurfersday.org to find out
how to register as an event holder.

Hairnet UK Ltd provide a Resource Pack for Silver Surfers' Day event holders
that contains advice on all aspects of running the day, handouts for Silver
Surfers, useful websites and advice on accessibility.

To obtain a Resource Pack, or for further details, please contact:
