Due to the forecast bad weather this weekend the scheduled digging at Millbrook Caravan Park has been postponed. Instead it is now scheduled for the following Saturday (22nd) starting at 9am on site at Millbrook Caravan Park.
If you can help in any way, please come down and join the team of volunteers. We are looking for a wide range of support from helping to dig, laying turfs, to the supply of hot drinks and food. If you would like to help, or would like more information, it would be helpful if you could email John Lyons email@example.com. But don’t worry if you can’t, just turn up on the day. Everybody is welcome. Diggers please bring your own spade & gloves and/or a firm broom/rake.
Thanks to great work by our volunteers the Crooklands phase of our community broadband project is nearing completion. The final road crossing has been completed and the ducting threaded through. While all the visible, external works have been going on our team of house kit installers has been busy inside all the properties getting ready for B4RN. We just need the fibre to be blown (connected) to each of the properties. In an effort to speed up the process some of the same volunteers who have been busy digging and fitting the new network have been to B4RN to be trained in blowing fibre. Hopefully Crooklands will be "live" soon!
Our Crooklands based volunteers have ensured that their little bit of the project has progressed really quickly. If you are keen for the community broadband to get to your part of the parish then please contact us via the Contact Page to see how you and your neighbours you can help. This is a community project - we cannot do it without you.
How do you fancy a glass of fizz and a mince pie? Or maybe just swap the mince pie for another glass of fizz?
On Monday, 9th December at 7pm in the Village Hall, there will be a Community Broadband meeting. The team will be giving an update on progress to date and the roll out plan for the next 12 months.
