Silvio Moretti won an early Christmas present thanks to local housing provider Aragon Housing Association.
The Marston Moretaine resident was among 20 lucky winners who scooped a tablet in a competition Aragon ran to mark its 20th anniversary.
He said: “I’m a bit mechanically minded so wasn’t sure about learning to use computers but now I have this I will definitely start. It’s a great first step.
“I think I will even sign up to Aragon’s free computer training courses.”
Aileen Evans, managing director of Aragon Housing Association, said: “We are really keen to promote getting online to our customers. It’s increasingly important they learn how to use computers to keep pace with the Government’s digital by default agenda.”
