The Lounge, a great Place to do business
More and more people are seeing the advantages of working from ad-hoc locations, why not give us a go?
Free Wi-Fi Coming To The Lounge Soon
ACT and The Lounge are pleased to announce that we are about to begin testing Free Wi-Fi access for the general public.
Over the next few weeks we will be installing wireless internet access that will allow customers of The Lounge to get onto the internet using their own hardware, allowing you the convenience of using your equipment, whilst enjoying a cup of coffee and cake in a friendly environment.
A notice will be posted here when it is up and running, along with terms and conditions and guides on staying safe.
And introducing Emily – the newly appointed Youth & Sustainability Manager
“I have lived in the village for 2 years after moving from Southampton. My background of working with young people stems from my involvement in The Gantry Youth Theatre where I progressed from being a member to a tutor. I also gained valuable experience from a variety of projects, such as dealing with young people who have been excluded from schools and those at risk of offending,
in conjunction with the NSPCC, to stage managing an award winning youth production in The Jermyn Street Theatre, London. I have also worked in prisons as a Drama & IT Tutor, and as a Drug Advisory Worker with adult offenders.
Youth Club serving refreshments for Comic Relief
Members of the youth club will be making and serving refreshments for Comic Relief. Feel free to come along and support this worthy cause between 7pm and 9pm on Thursday 17th March 2011.
Lounge PC Info
The Lounge's IT Equipment
We have been donated 5 HP pc's and monitors by SCH for use in The Lounge. We have 4 currently accessable to the general public, with the other one being kept back as a spare. In addition we were kindly donated another pc by a member of the public, which we will be using for a Web Proxy to provide internet acceleration and some content filtering.
The pc's run on Microsofts Windows XP3 Service pack 3. This was preinstalled on the pc's and is fully licensed using the XP Microsoft Authorised Refubisher programme.
