THE county council is making 125 recycled desktop computers available free of charge to community or voluntary organisations, including town and parish councils, within Warwickshire.

Each organisation can apply for up to two machines each which will consist of a Dell desktop with a Windows 7 and 80GB hard drive, a monitor, keyboard and mouse with a number of licence free programmes and a three month warranty. No laptops are available.

Locally based community groups or small-scale groups with little or no IT equipment can apply but will be asked to demonstrate how it will help their organisation to grow.

Cllr Colin Hayfield said: “The PCs are in excellent condition and have been reformatted by skilled ICT staff so that they are very reliable with a good memory.

“We hope that they can continue to be useful and that they can save local organisations money that can instead be spent on the activities which are having great benefits for their communities.”

For an application pack call Ali Mainey on 01789 260134 or email alisonmainey@warwickshire.gov.uk Applications are invited by 5pm on Friday 26 October.
