The Connected Counties programme will be providing fibre broadband coverage to some of this area.They do not guarantee that every home and business will be connected to the new high-speed fiber-optic infrastructure (100MB speed). We must therefore lobby hard here, starting now.

The current advice of the Braughing Parish Council to residents is NOT to respond to this consultation exercise.
On Thursday 12th June, the parish council were first contacted by Gladman Developments regarding the above. They were informed they were intending to launch a public consultation into a proposal for a new residential development of approximately 75 homes on land to the east of Green End, between Gravelly Lane and Hay Street. They indicated they planned to deliver consultation leaflets to over 400 homes in the parish, which they understand have since begun to arrive.
Please see the note from the Parish Council

A Google map should appear with a marker and you can then drag the marker to the exact location of the pothole(s).You should also upload a photo as this is vital evidence especially if your vehicle has been damaged.

Every household in Britain is being encouraged to turn out the lights between 10pm and 11pm on Monday 4th August to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.
The nationwide event is designed to echo the words attributed to Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, on the eve of the conflict: “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.” People from all four nations will be invited to turn off their lights and to replace them with one single light to remember a day that changed the world forever.
Germany declared war on France and invaded Belgium on 3rd August 1914. That evening, Sir Edward Grey gazed across St James's Park from his window at the Foreign Office as the lamps were being lit on the Mall. He turned to a friend, John Spender, and made his now famous remark. The Lights Out event will take place at the same time a candlelit vigil of prayer, readings and music held in Westminster Abbey. During the event, candles will be extinguished one by one until a single flame is snuffed out at 11pm.
At home here in Braughing, we would encourage all residents to participate in this act of remembrance. The ringers will ring the church bells at 10pm to signal the beginning of the hour. Residents are very welcome to join the ringers in the church. Bring your candle with you.
