VILLAGE BROADBAND

A community project is currently underway, supported by the Parish Council, to try and get fibre broadband into the village. Many residents experience very slow broadband speeds, but there are national and local funding streams available – around £1500 per household, plus some ‘top up’ funding via the www.gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk scheme – and if enough households in the village sign up to the project, then this could amount to a sizeable pot of money, to attract a fibre provider to install the necessary kit. You should have received a leaflet about this and there’s also information on the noticeboards. Already around 30 households have joined, which is great – but more are needed! If you’re interested, please email mitfordpc@gmail.com with your name, address and landline number.
