Your photographs wanted.
The Parish Council is working on a new website and a possible social media outlet. We are looking for photographs that show a village scene or community activity. The best shots will be selected for use on the website. We will require you to let us have the copyright and to have obtained the permission of anyone who features clearly in the picture. No prizes sadly but you will have the satisfaction of knowing you work will be widely seen and appreciated.
Brockenhurst Superfast Broadband – update 27/4/16.
BT Openreach are still in discussion with the Forestry Commission and others to agree the amount of excavation required to install underground ducting on FC managed land. Residents fed from Cabinet 1 (near to the Catholic Church) are less affected since only the arrangement for supply of mains electricity has to be established before work can be planned to start. It is now hoped that Cabinet 1 can be completed by the end of this calendar year.
The completion of cabinet 2 (the New Forest Drive area) is more complicated. Hampshire County Council are doing all they can to try to achieve installation this year but the programme to complete cabinet 2 may well run into 2017. It is for this reason that you may be confused by the HCC broadband website which has two conflicting completion dates – the earlier one indicating the HCC effort to advance the work, the later one showing the contractual position if BT Openreach cannot start the work early enough.
We are obviously very disappointed with the extended delays and continue to press HCC and offer any help we can give to BT Openreach.
