Please specify the group

ENTRA, short for Ewanrigg and Netherton Tenant’s and Resident’s Association, is a group of volunteers prepared to give up their time own to make the estate a happier and safer place to live. An earlier version existed over fifty years but had lain dormant for some time until, inspired by Colette Small of Home Group, local residents called a general meeting and the new version was born in July 2010. Supported by funding from Awards for All, Cumbria Community Foundation, Neighbourhood Forum and other smaller funders together with the continued support of Home Group, ENTRA’s success has been amazing.

Several awards and taking on the lease of the community centre from Home have established ENTRA as a leading community group in the area and enabled them to create activities and organise events for all ages.

A relationship formed with Rosehill Theatre through their On the Road programme has seen international artists such as classical pianist Phillip Dyson and Scottish tenor Nicky Spence perform in the centre and actress Julie Hesomondhaigh, better known as Hayley Cropper in Coronation Street, performed the Royal Exchange play “Black Roses” to a sell out audience.

Many other community organisations including MIND, Age UK, the WEA, Arts out West and CAB have also taken advantage of ENTRA’s ability to bring large groups of residents together in the centre to promote their services.

i have had a computer for twenty years but I'm no expert. |However it does disappoint me that so many of the older generation as I am refuse to learn when it is much easier than they believe. Generally its security fears which are understandable but not unavoidable When I am explaining it to someone new I say compare computers with cars. most of us have them but we don't all have to go to the same olaces. We decide for ourselves where want to go for example we wouldn't take a car to Iraq but that's no reason for not having one. First thing I show anyone new is you tube which is so simple to use nut amazes everyone and is itself worth the effort for just a little l earning. We have computers at the centre free to use and a friendly group on Friday mornings 10 to 12 open to anyone with a couple of knowledgeable ladies happy to teach the basics and give advice/ Its free but you can pay £1 and have a bacon and egg sandwich with tea or coffee.If you already have a computer but are worried by all the stories of scams and hacking we have an expert r representing the banks coming to the centre on Monday 23r d September at 11 am to offer free advice on staying safe online
Its free and no need to book Any queries please message me
