What does it do?

At Age UK Knaresborough & District we understand that learning and exercise is not just for the young and that as we get older it is in fact more important than ever. With more free time to spend doing things that you would like to do we hope that our Learning and Leisure Programme can offer something for everyone. All our tutors are very experienced and the emphasis is very much on learning through enjoyment in a friendly and modern environment.

We offer courses on the following topics:

  • Computing
  • Digital Photography
  • iPad and Android Tablets
  • Exercise


Computing courses take place in our purpose built resource centre in Knaresborough where we have a fully equipped IT suite. Courses range from absolute beginners through to improvers and beyond. 

Digital Photography

On our digital photography courses you can get tips on how to take photos and instruction on how to store, organise and edit photos. 

Tablet Computers 

People are increasingly using iPads and android tablet computers due to their speed and ease of use. If you would like to know more about them come to one of our 2 hour sessions - click on the Computer Club Programme link below.

The Computer Club

The Computer Club is now two years old! It's aim is to provide a programme of useful and interesting two hour sessions which are related to computing.
