Missed our village hall meetings in the past few weeks?
Well the storms didn’t help, did they?
Well, know you can catch up with all the latest info on our new YouTube page!
All the info on where we’re up to so far and how with your help we can be building in just weeks and online in the Spring!
We need a little of your help signing up for online government vouchers is all we ask! (We’ll even give you some money back for getting connected!)
Find all the info here!
For all those who braved the wind, snow, rain and floods – Thank you so much for all the support! It really helps keep us motivated to see this through to the end!
Remember it’s super important for us to get you to sign up for these government vouchers. Don’t mix them up with our old EOI (Expression of Interest) forms. These new vouchers bring money in to help us build the network see this post… http://b4ntr.com/uncategorized/government-voucher-scheme-sign-up-open-for-our-area-150-300-for-getting-connected/ for all the details.
Remember tell your friends and neighbours – help them sign up and don’t forget to click the link which will be sent to you by email (after about 48h after filling in the form).
All this can be done at the B4RN website – https://b4rn.org.uk/postcode-checker/
Just pop your postcode in and fill out the usual details. Then REMEMBER to check your junk mail with 48h as for some reason government info always tends to end up there?! If you forget to do this the whole thing will be cancelled and we’ll lose money in our area and the project won’t be able to go ahead 🙁
If you’ve done above great! You are on your way to faster, better internet and once connected you receive a cash grant of £150/£300 depending on if you are signed up as a resident or a business.
