The Skype's the limit for silver surfer Valerie
KEEPING in touch with friends and family can be difficult when they move to different countries.
But one Hayle woman decided she wasn't going to let distance stand in the way of seeing her granddaughter grow up.
Valerie Rowe, 73, is partially sighted and had never had any reason to use a computer before, but feeling she was missing out on four-year-old Teresa's life made her determined to learn. She signed up for Superfast Cornwall's beginner IT lessons and now regularly uses the internet to chat to her son and granddaughter in Thailand.
"It has opened up a new world for me," she said.
