Cyber_Shed’s Simon Hare and Jade Hudson – preparing to bring digital outreach to you.

This month, to celebrate Get Online Week, Blackheath’s Cyber_Shed digital cottage is taking its service on the road, to the more outlying parts of the Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre (BANC) territory.

This is a first for Cyber_Shed, but something that’s always been part of its aims.

The Cyber_Shed team will be spending one day at Megalong (October 16), Hartley (17th), Mount Wilson (18th) and Blackheath (19th), encouraging locals to #Try1Thing, that is try one new thing, online.

The team will be making a special emphasis on encouraging the use of NSW Rural Fire Service mobile apps which aim to keep individuals and communities bushfire safe. 

These apps are the real-time emergency warning app FiresNearMe and the bushfire preparation app MyFirePlan.

Cyber_Shed will set up its mobile service for one morning at Megalong, Hartley, Mount Wilson, and back at Blackheath in The Gardens outside the Country Women’s Association house.

Look out for ‘pop-up’ Cyber_Shed near you – spot the van, ‘The Black Mariah’, with Cyber_Shed signage and our bright red shade gazebo.

Come say hello, and #Try1Thing new on your phone or tablet or laptop.

Bookings encouraged, but certainly not essential – 0458 099 001 or cyber_shed@banc.org.au

Cyber_Shed Roadshow is funded by the national Be Connected Network as part of #Try1Thing Get Online Week 2018.
