09 September 2019News from CPRE

 is changing to 

CPRE, the Campaign to Protect Rural England, has changed its emblem to a new more up to date one, and in trying to promote what they do, are returning to the principles of CPRE’s founders to promote, enhance and protect the countryside.

The organisation has reported a drop in membership and has accepted a request from those who are members to be more ambitious in their scope to achieve a countryside for everyone.

They say a multitude of surveys show that most people feel the countryside is an important national asset but extensive consultation over the past 18 months has shown that CPRE can be perceived as being negative, with this putting many potential supporters off.

The Chief Executive, Crispin Truman, says everyone will see a change in tone from CPRE, focusing more on the positive solutions that they have always tried to create.  This is underpinned by their new strategic aims – ‘Connect people and countryside’, ‘Promote rural life’ and ’Empower communities’.

You can find out more by visiting the CPRE website.

Your parish council are members of the organisation and clerk Mike Elliott can be contacted for details on 0115 937 6506.

Free Tree Scheme for Residents from Rushcliffe Borough Council

For residents, two trees will be available – crab apple and rowan. Anyone wishing to apply can do so to Mr Paul Phillips whose direct telephone number at the council offices at Rushcliffe Arena, Rugby Road, West Bridgford is 914 8595.

The trees supplied would be between 1.5 and 2 metres in height and would be complete with tree guards, mulch mat and tree stakes.

Any queries maybe addressed to Mike Elliott, clerk to the Parish Council 0115 937 6506.

12 July 2019VE Day 75

Plans are being formulated nationally for events in May 2020 to mark the 75th anniversary of the ending of WW2, and the parish council are looking for ways to join in the activities that will be taking place.

The council welcome any suggestions from residents for ideas for activities and events that might be held in the village in order that we can be part of the nation’s tribute to all those who gave their lives and those who kept the country running during the most challenging times between 1939 and 1945.

01 July 2019Superfast Broadband

From Nottinghamshire County Council:

The county council along with BT have been working to improve broadband in this area. We are delighted to announce that engineering work has been completed and you are now able to place an order for a fibre to the premise (FTTP) service. FTTP is the most up to date broadband solution currently available and will be capable of delivering speeds of up to 330 Mbps. Because this type of broadband is so new, ordering an FTTP service is slightly different. ACT NOW - YOUR SERVICE WILL NOT BE UPGRADED AUTOMATICALLY. Please see our step-by-step guide below for details on how to upgrade.

Step 1 Find the best deal. Because FTTP is still a relatively new technology not all internet service providers (ISPs) currently offer a package, so you may need to consider changing your provider. Take some time to explore your options, get quotes and choose the right deal for you. Take a look at the table below; this shows ISPs that offer a FTTP service in Nottinghamshire, this is a good place to start gathering quotes, but bear in mind this list may not be exhaustive and as the market grows the list will grow too.

Step 2 Survey. When placing an order, your chosen ISP will provide you with a date for an engineer to visit and carry out tests or even a survey, should one be necessary. In some cases, additional works may be required to bring the fibre cable into your premises, you will need to discuss this with your service provider.

Step 3 Engineer Visit. Following the survey, an engineer connects the fibre cable to a small box (approx. 15cm x 10cm x 3 cm) which will need to be fixed to the outside wall of your property. The box will be installed at a height that can be worked on from ground level.

Step 4 Enjoy! Take advantage of futureproof broadband with the best speeds currently available.
