Conservative campaigner for Saughall and Mollington Ward, Simon Eardley, attended the B4RN Cheshire public meeting at the Gordale Garden Centre earlier this week. B4RN is a community project aiming to bring fast (1000Mbps) full fibre broadband to a number of villages in the ward. Reporting on the event, Simon said:
"It was fantastic to see such enthusiasm for this project to bring full fibre, hyper-fast, broadband to Burton, Capenhurst, Ledsham, Ness, Puddington, Shotwick, TwoMills and Woodbank - the room was packed out! Members of the team outlined the next steps and informed everyone of their ambitious timetable to get people connected, starting as early as this autumn. The scheme is entirely driven by volunteers at this stage and now they need the help of local people who want to see progress happen."
Can you get involved? Here are some of the ways you can help out:
- Provide details of local landowners
- Help obtain 'wayleaves' to allow the physical elements of the project to progress across the area
- Invest in the project from as little as £100
- Give practical support such as digging trenches, canvassing neighbours, route planning, technical support or even making tea and cakes.
