Volunteers Wanted to Help Vulnerable People with the Digital TV Switch Over

Support our outreach work in Cambridgeshire’s villages and towns.  How we receive our television signal is changing. At the end of March 2011, the current analogue signal will be turned off and replaced with a digital signal that you will need special equipment to receive. The national “Switchover Help Scheme” has been well-publicised but there will still be many people who do not understand what Switchover is about and these are likely to be the most vulnerable people in our communities.

Your help needed in getting FASTER BROADBAND in Haslingfield

Do you know about the opportunity to get faster broadband for those of us on the Harston exchange (which includes Haslingfield) by voting on a BT website?
 
If 1000 votes are lodged for the Harston exchange we could be fast-tracked for an upgraded service, which will not only affect BT customers but those on other networks too.
 
The way to vote is to go to www.racetoinfinity.bt.com – it takes less than a minute to do, and as at Sunday 10 October , we still have quite a way to go before we reach the 1000 votes needed, so please “spread the word” after voting yourself.

Scarecrows ‘on tour’

A number of scarecrows were apparently moved from the village to a roundabout on the A603 / M11 junction, and one was found in Hardwick. They have since been returned to the village – no doubt to the great relief of their owners who will have put a lot of work into them.

Are all the scarecrows now accounted for?
Who moved them and why?
Were they trying to hitch a lift up the A14?
