I like to think that's what we do in the Back of Beyond each month;
certainly those who ask for and need help tend to receive *some* pointers,
albeit not much of a hands-on session unless they happen to bring a laptop
they want looking at.  And if someone's in the mood to look at it.

We've had a few from HW turn up over the years, and as I said, it's bind
getting to Reading from there.  Aside from campaigning for better public
transport links, there isn't a lot any of us can do, I think.

Good luck.  I hope you can create something worthwhile.  Shout if you need
something.  You never know.
