Local Broadband Update.

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.

With Christmas just around the corner check out the Village Diary for up and comming events over the festive season.

At the recently held Braughing Fair and Wheelbarrow Race open meeting, it was agreed by all to hold the 2015 event on Saturday 20 June starting at 12 noon at 'The Ford'. There will be a lot of effort required to run the event, as in previous years, and volunteers are needed to make the event the success that the village, and our visitors, have come to expect.

Please spare some time to contact a member of the organising team here >>> so that they can get a head start on planning the event.
