Events for June/July:
Please pass this on to anybody local who may be interested.
If you check this link http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/
You need to zoom into Witchampton to find the status of the local exchange. (Its current status is “Not Currently in Roll Out Plans” status… that is the lowest status of five categories.
You will see that Witchampton is bottom of the list as regards getting faster broadband. This will become ever more inconvenient as in the future the internet will change to service the majority of people with fast broadband. Apart from a feeling of being left in the stone age it will affect the market value of our houses.
The minimum we should do is to register an interest in Superfast broad band with http://www.dorsetforyou.com/superfast-dorset/register-interest
Many years ago there was a campaign run by the Witchampton Community to get the original basic broadband. I don’t know how we could organise anything along those lines now.
In order to raise funds for the Witchampton Play Park some members of the village have set themselves the challenge of climbing all 842 steps of the BT Tower London.
This event will be taking place on Monday 4th February. You can donate online at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/justinbignell1 so please give generously and help raise money for this amazing community cause.
