BROADBAND IN SUTTON VILLAGE As some of you know, we had a well attended meeting in the village hall in April that was attended by Gary Disley of Fibrewifi
A number of you expressed interest in taking up his service when it became available. He suggested that anyone who wanted to do so should apply for a voucher from Better broadband to reduce the cost. A number of people have done so.
The plan now is to install a new larger pole at the village hall which will improve connections for the Southern end of the village. This should happen shortly. We then intend to put up a pole at the Northern end of the village which will be able to serve most people there. I hope to have some news on that for the next newsletter
Nothing has been heard from BT either about the green box supposedly to be installed in September or the ‘white space’ service which went offline for 2 weeks in June but is now running again. It appears to be impossible to find anyone at BT to talk to about either of these subjects.
There are tabs at the top for the main activities in the village e.g. the Church, Clubs (Bowls, Ladies and Youth Football)
The Hall page has details of Pilates and Dance classes and other facilities (Mobile Post Office, Library etc) as well as information on how to hire the Hall. You will also find the village Newsletters and details of Parish Council members and meetings.
The 'events' calendar has details of Quiz nights and other events - simply click on a darker shaded date or go to the 'Events' link on the right.
Finally, all the pictures on the site where taken in or around the village. If you have photos of the village, historical or current, please use the 'Contact Us' link on the right to get in touch.
