Update on Superfast Broadband from our Champion - Jo Grey(published by: Parish Council)
As the Champion on Superfast Broadband in the village on behalf of the Parish Council, I am pleased to advise that Cabinet #3 at the village crossroads has been enabled and people can now contact a range of providers to discuss upgrades if they wish. A good website to research is http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/buy-it-now/ but there are likely to be many other possible internet service providers who can offer fibre-optic broadband packages.
Postcodes that should now have access to fibre-optic based broadband should include:- 1RB; 1RD; 1RE; 1RF; 1RG; 1RH; 1RJ; 1RL; 1RQ; 1RR; 1RS; 1RT; 1RW; 1SE; 1SF; 1SG; 1SH; 1SQ; 1SN; 1SR; 1SW.
This may not be a definitive list and you can check through the BT website and your phone number.
As indicated previously, possible downloads speeds of between 25-50Mbps should be accessible for those (above) postcodes furthest from the village crossroads, while others should get up to around 70Mbps.
South Warnborough Village Shop
An agreement has been reached between the management committee of South Warnborough Village Shop Association and Jo Hamilton to accommodate a change of tenancy at the village shop. The negotiations will be explained to an EGM of South Warnborough Village Shop Association to be called in March, details of which will be circulated to all Shareholders.
After 12 years at the helm Jo will surely be missed but SWVSA is confident that the new incumbents will build on her achievements to date by serving the village, expanding the range of produce and staying at the heart of the local community.
Tony Murley, Chairman SWVSA

Among all the lobbying, hype, controversey, Europe.....Yawn, turn off. There is something really important.
Close to home local issues fall to the Parish Council in the first place. An assertive Parish Council can make a positive difference to the village environment, infrastructure and planning. It takes a little effort but not a whole lot. This year some of our councillors are standing down having done their turn over a number of years and their contributions are recognised and applauded.
Now is the time for those who would enjoy new opportunities to step up and seek to join the Parish Council. At this time there are vacancies which would allow candidates to be co-opted directly to the Council. (No electoral polll required.)
It would be refreshing if a younger person were to take advantage of thiis opportunity but of course volunteers of any vintage would be most welcome.
