Welcome to SeniorNet Nelson
LEARNING TECHNOLOGY TOGETHER
SENIORNET NELSON HAS NOW, SADLY, CLOSED ITS DOORS FOR THE LAST TIME.
After more than 30 years of providing digital help and companionship to its many members it has been necessary to hand over the keys.
You will be missed SeniorNet Nelson but we do need to remember that there are many appreciative seniors out there who have benefitted from the technical knowledge they have learned. It has allowed them to keep up with the younger folk around them and encouraged them to enter into the world of digital connectivity.
SeniorNet Nelson has been part of the New Zealand SeniorNet community since 1992. This training network has supported and motivated many people aged over 50 to use and enjoy computers and other technology in their everyday lives.

Since 1992 technology has evolved radically and the number of different devices has mushroomed. Many other organisations now provide similar education and there are numerous tutorials to be found online. All this has inevitably changed the nature of SeniorNet Nelson and sadly the time has come to wind up the club completely.
Most classes and groups have stopped already but please check the TimeTable for what is still available. Everything will be fully completed by the end of June this year.
The DIG and iPad Groups have amalgamated with U3A Nelson and if you would like to find out more about these go to the U3A Nelson website. Anyone who is interested in these or other U3A Study Groups would be welcomed by U3A. (Join U3A: $30/year)
Notes and some dates
In terms of the ongoing process of dissolution some important points to note are:
- We are closing our email database from 31 March 2023 and you will not receive any communications from us after that. However, the email address email@example.com will be monitored until the end of June for any queries you may have.
- Our website will be live until the end of June. You are able to download anything you want to keep from the website (interest group reports etc) prior to the end of June.
- All records on our membership database will be destroyed in a professional manner at an appropriate point in the closing down process.
It has been decided to have one last Club Meeting on the 22nd March
All members are welcome – past and present
Important – It is no longer necessary to bring a plate,
just turn up and enjoy.

Club Meetings were a great opportunity to join in and catch up with friends. Consider joining U3A instead, some of our groups will still carry on under the U3A umbrella. Click here to find out more about U3A Nelson
These sessions start this Wednesday 8th March and will continue for the rest of March.
Check the TimeTable for future sessions. These sessions will be FREE.
We will try to help with problems concerning Apple Macs and PCs with Microsoft Operating Systems (Windows 7, 8 and 10). We can also help with Android tablets, iPads, Smartphones and other devices. No question is too basic – we have all been there!

Hangouts is seven-days-a-week free online tuition consisting of up to six half-hour presentations per day. A tutor, or Hangout “buddy”, meets up to six registered participants on an advertised topic at the scheduled date and time, and all parties can see and hear each other.
Senior Hangouts covers a myriad of technology-related subjects. The presenter explains the topic by sharing his or her screen, often displaying a Powerpoint presentation. It is explained live, with participants able to interject and ask questions.
