To celebrate the launch of our new new website and online services and to encourage residents who aren’t using digital yet, we have organised ‘DigiFeb’ – a series of events and roadshows offering fun digital activities and learning opportunities across the Borough.

DigiFest – Fun for all the family

On Saturday 18th February we will be hosting Stockport’s first DigiFest from 10.30am to 3.00pm at Central Library and the Hatworks in Stockport.

We’ve teamed up with Madlab for lots of fun family activities, including free coding lessons, tech workshops for all ages such as creating electronic badges with LED lights, 3D printing, Minecraft coding, gamecraft and much more.

Visitors will also be able to learn more about getting online, staying safe online and the new features of the Council’s online services.

Residents who aren’t sure how to use their computer, tablet or smartphone are encouraged to bring it along to our Digi Drop-in where we will help them work it out.
