Gigaclear public meeting

Gigaclear  invites Hamstead Marshall residents to attend a free community Q&A event to address questions about ultrafast pure fibre broadband and the rollout in the village. The event will be held at Hamstead Marshall Village Hall on Wednesday 25th April, 6.30pm - 8.30pm. 

  •           What difference can ultrafast broadband make for you?
  •           What does fibre to the premises actually mean?
  •           What packages are currently available from Gigaclear?
  •           What can 1000Mbps  do for your internet usage?
  •           What is the process of switching from your current provider?
  •           How can a broadband phone line save on line rental?

There is no charge for entry but Gigaclear requests that you register in advance before coming.

Parish plan update

The date for return has been extended to 30th April.

Hamstead Marshall’s parish plan of 2007 is being revised, and opinion is being sought as to residents’ priorities for action.

A print copy of a questionnaire has been delivered to households in the village.

To obtain more copies you can either:

a) download this pdf and print it out, then deliver it completed to the village hall;

b) download the pdf and then save it on your computer as a Word document, in which you can write your answers, and email the completed form to the parish clerk.

Walbury Computer Group

The group's mission is to help individuals get to grips with their laptop, tablet, phone or camera, so that they can fully participate in an increasingly technical world. Since the group started in 2011 volunteers have provided 610 one-to-one tuition sessions, and 84 hours of drop-in café sessions and workshops.  However, demand for  help has dropped off in recent months.

The number of sessions on offer will now reduce from from weekly to monthly. There will be sessions at Inglewood on 4th April, 2nd May and 6th June; then there will be a summer break, and depending on demand, sessions may resume in the autumn.

To book a one-to-one session on any of the above Wednesdays, at either 10am or 11am, please phone Patricia Poyton on 01488 668901.
