A nationwide road show is set to help people across Scotland get online.

The Scottish Government’s Let’s Get On team will visit Lidl at Balmoor Retail Park, Peterhead on Tuesday, 21 April from 10am until 6pm.

They will be offering free, informal, drop-in sessions on how to get online and the benefits the internet can bring.

As well as Peterhead, trained and friendly staff will host around 90 sessions at a variety of locations ranging from supermarkets to shopping centres to sports clubs and local community hubs.

The team will help people experience the benefits of being online first hand by demonstrating a variety of online activities such as how to set up an email address, tips for safe internet shopping and banking and how to video call friends and family.

Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities Keith Brown said: “Let’s Get On supports our digital world class 2020 vision by bringing technology to life for people.

“It will make people’s lives easier and help the Scottish Government achieve its goal of a more connected, fairer, wealthier and smarter digital Scotland.

Singer Michelle McManus who is an avid fan of the internet, said: “I would recommend anyone who needs help getting online to head along to your local Let’s Get On session.”
