Great Recognition

 Its great recognition and thanks to all who helped clear, tidy and plant for the good of the village. Its a great starting point for what can be achieved in the future by all working together. Its in the name of our gardening club but was a true joint effort by the club, the school children, members of our PC and residents in general. I look forward to the development’s in coming years. This type of project takes time, it’s not an overnight event. Roll on 2018

Update to Eastoft Superfast Broadband


Update to Eastoft Superfast Broadband.

Eastoft Broadband Extension (Community Funded)

We have just had the second meeting with North lincs Council re getting superfast broadband into the rest of the village (we being the committee formed to get things moving and accessing grants etc.)

The meeting was to formalise where we needed to go next with applying for grant funding to meet the cost of getting BT/Openreach to supply the infrastructure (there is no competition in the village unfortunately) and to ask a few questions mostly of a technical nature.
We are looking now to formalise the structure of the committee and take this on as fast as we can to realise our wish for decent broadband speeds for everyone in the village that wants them.
We will know more by the time of our next meeting and will seek to keep you all up to date as much as we can. Please encourage those who you know will not read this that we are working for everyone not just those on facebook.

Any questions please ask an we will try our best to answer but please be aware we are at a very early stage and may not yet have an answer. Either on here or through me will be fine.
