A PROJECT has launched today which will teach community groups how to make the most of the internet.

The three-year project - managed by national charity Citizens Online - is open to anyone interested in learning more about IT and the Internet.

Project Coordinator Alison Vint is hosting a launch event at The Ozone, Oakwell Stadium until 3pm today. She said: "It is really exciting to be working on this project in Barnsley at this time when there is such a buzz about getting online.

"I am looking forward to meeting up with community groups and individuals who may not yet have had chance to find out about the benefits of the internet and hope people will take the opportunity to come down."
