Technology Expert Volunteers to Help Businesses in Horncastle

20th March 2015

Horncastle’s Lincolnshire Technology Hub has a new face to welcome local businesses. Nathaniel Moody, who runs a local computer services business, will be running the hub at Mortons Media Group on Morton Way.

He will be there on Monday and Thursday mornings between 8.30am and 12.30pm and is the latest addition to a small team of volunteers who are keen to help local firms experience the new technologies available at the hub.

As well as a 3D printer, laser cutter, UV printer and virtual reality headsets, visitors can also use a milling machine. All the equipment is free to use and smaller items can also be loaned. In addition, the hub can provide 12 hours of free business support for eligible businesses.

Nicola Radford, Project Officer from Lincolnshire County Council, who oversees the Lincolnshire Technology Hubs, said: “The location of the Horncastle Technology Hub makes it easily accessible to local businesses. We’ve had a great response from the community so far and we’ve helped lots of people realise how technology can help them improve their products and processes. 

“We are very lucky to have Nathaniel helping as a volunteer, and we’d encourage as many people as possible to tap into his technical knowledge and expertise.”
