We’ve added an open letter from Alex Tasker to the  Parish Council Information section containing details of an existing fast broadband scheme and information on upcoming schemes. It’s worth taking a look whether you’re currently suffering from slow broadband and also if you’re interested in supporting efforts to get more widespread fast broadband to help our local businesses, students and those who would benefit from better connectivity.

The BBC News website ran a recent article on rural broadband (copied below) warning that councils only have until February 2012 to apply for government funding for fast broadband.

Help tomorrow take shape

November 20, 2010

On 27 March 2011 all residential households in the United Kingdom will be taking part in a census. Since 1801 a day has been chosen every ten years for this purpose. The census provides an excellent source of information about the population. This enables central and local government, health authorities and many other organisations to plan housing, education, health and transport services for years to come.

The census statistics feed into the allocation of funding for local authorities and play a major part in their ability to provide local services, so it is crucial the population estimate is as accurate as possible. When the questionnaire envelope comes through the door you’ll easily recognise it by the purple 2011 Census logo. Take care of it. If, like many people, you want to complete the questionnaire online, your individual internet code is on the front of the questionnaire.

The 2011 Census doesn’t want anyone to fall behind – so there is a wide range of help options available (such as language guidance booklets, large print format, Text Relay and census field staff on hand, as well as online help and telephone call centres).

More information about the 2011 Census can be found at: www.census.gov.uk

Parish council minutes updated

October 31, 2010

David has scanned some past parish council minutes and we’ve stored them on this site as PDF files which is Adobe’s read-only format. Most computers have Adobe Reader (which used to be called Adobe Acrobat) already installed, but if you don’t you can get it from here:

To get to the minutes, look for the ‘Parish Council’ link above, hover your mouse on it and you’ll see a submenu drop down – one of the items is ‘Minutes and Agendas’ – click it!
