BEST meeting today!

Hi we’ve another lovely BEST meeting at the Looking Well Studios, King St. High Bentham at 7.30pm.

Collette Austin will be showing you how to use our WordPress blog so that you can add your own stuff whenever you find something you think will be interesting to the group.  We’re going to be upstairs on the 1st floor where apparently the internet connection is better.

Do not be alarmed it is very easy and there is no pressure on anyone who doesn’t want to have a go.
