ELDERLY residents put their grey matter to the test to surf the internet.
A group of over-50s attended a silver surfer session at Oakley Resource Centre to improve their IT skills.
Organised by Cheltenham Borough Council, the session was a chance to learn about the Gloucestershire Homeseeker website, an online tool to register and bid for social housing.
Councillor Bernard Fisher, cabinet member for housing and safety, said: "The system has been well-received since it went live last year. We wanted to make sure it can be easily used by all our customers."
