Where could I learn practical and general cycling maintenance?

I've dug out the old cycle from the shed and plan on actually using it now. I'm not very practical, and even the thought of taking a back wheel off, with all those gears, is pretty daunting.
I've been out and about on it recently, but the idea of a back puncture makes me think I might just throw it into a canal!
Is there recommendations on learning cycle stuff anywhere? I'm in Hemel Hempstead btw.
Thanks.
