As part of the borough’s first Digital Dacorum week residents will get the chance to use Dacorum Borough Council’s new website for the first time on Monday 7 March.
Residents will benefit from being able to access an ever increasing range of services at the touch of a button from paying their council tax to applying for an allotment. The new website has been designed to make it even easier for residents to use on a smartphone or tablet, so they can access Council services where and when they need to.
The website will be launched as part of Digital Dacorum week which will run from 7-12 March. During the week residents will have the opportunity to access free computer training and internet skills courses. They will also have access to free internet cafes and can get advice on using the internet on their tablet or smartphone.
Dacorum Borough Council will also be in in Hemel Hempstead Town Centre on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 March to answer your questions about the new website and give you the chance to win a Kindle Fire.
Digital Dacorum week has been put together in partnership with Tesco, Three Mobile, Osbourne, Dacorum Communities for Learning, South Hill Centre, Dacorum, Look No Further and Local Digital.
Portfolio Holder for Residents and Corporate Services, Councillor Neil Harden, said, “This is a great opportunity for our residents to learn some digital skills for free. As more and more of our lives become digital- with more people communicating on social media, jobs being advertised online and online retailers offering a wider range than traditional stores- we want everyone to take advantage of being able to get online.
“We want to thank all our partners for working with us to make Digital Dacorum Week possible and give our residents the chance to get digital.” For a list of all the events taking place during Digital Dacorum week visit www.dacorum.gov.uk/digital
