COMMUNITY FIBRE BROADBAND SCHEME

We are STILLshort of the total that needs to be paid and really do need those of you who have already pledged to pay, to do so now.

Everybody needs to consider that the scheme will fail and the properties on the CFBS list will not have FTTP available unless we can all raise the required total.

Please contact the Chairman of the Parish Council on 07751064493 or email minsteadchairman@gmail.comfor details of how to contribute your share, or to make a goodwill donation.

The current situation may be seen here
