Wednesday the 22nd September 2010 marked an important day in the ongoing development of ACE IT – with the official opening of our new George Street offices and computer training suite
ACE IT Chair John Elliot (centre left) opens the celebration and congratulates
all involved in the move to the new George Street offices.
Since moving from our previous offices in Dalry – staff and volunteers have been busy arranging equipment and furniture to best possible effect in order to create a training area which retains the relaxed and user friendly atmosphere our clients have come to know and expect.
After all the hard work, the opening celebration provided the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy catching up with friends old and new – many of whom were visiting the offices for the very first time
The celebration reflected the relaxed and informal atmosphere staff,
volunteers and learners have come to know and expect from ACE IT.
On the day, ACE IT staff and volunteers were joined by current and former learners, volunteers from the Moose in the Hoose project and the Edinburgh Silver Surfers.
Silver Surfer Kath Wilkie shares her views concerning the new offices
with Councillor Norman Work and ACE IT Chief Executive Jenny Ridge (centre).
Local MSP Sarah Boyack and local councillor Norman Work who have both shown outstanding support for ACE IT were also in attendance. The event also provided an ideal opportunity to introduce ourselves to the local George Street community and we were delighted to welcome representatives from a number of local businesses and organisations including the George Street Association. The afternoon proved a great success with everyone remarking on the outstanding quality and flexibility of the new premises. A fantastic first event to be hosted at our new location and – it is to be hoped – the first of many such occasions.
