SUPERFAST FOR SEDLESCOMBE PROJECT

 

1. Thank you for registering your interest on the Rural Broadband Partnership website. 

 

2. Sedlescombe Parish Council is determined to do all it can to ensure that Sedlescombe makes the best case possible for getting its broadband provision upgraded.  It cannot do it by itself and is calling on everyone in our community to spread the word. You can really help simply by:

2.1 Identifying at least two more people that you know, e.g. neighbours, friends, family or acquaintances within the Sedlescombe community.  There's no restriction on the numbers.

 

2.2  Guiding them to the broadband page on Sedlescombe Parish Council's website so that they can be more fully aware of how everyone in the Village will be affected.

 

2.3  Encouraging them to use the links on this page to register their interest at the Rural Broadband Partnership website. 

 

This is very important if we are to be most effective. Clearly, the more people you can involve the better the case Sedlescombe Parish Council will be able to submit. Inevitably there will be some duplication but this should soon subside.

 

Volunteers are already standing by to help with any problems you might encounter registering.  They will always welcome additions to their number.   If you feel you could confidently help someone else to find their way through to registration please please join them at Sedlescombe@freezone.co.uk or on 01424 870508. There is no limit to numbers. A high figure should help our case.

 

PLEASE REMEMBER


As long as we can show as a community that we have a need now or in the future for Superfast Broadband, the County Council has stated we will get it.


Towns and urban areas are surging ahead and Sedlescombe must not get left behind.  Many will say that either they do not need access to the internet at all or that they are satisfied with their current speeds.  But don’t be fooled, we must look to the future.  Getting support for new technology is always difficult.  Look at these local examples:


1912 – Sedlescombe Parish Council was asked to attend a meeting with Battle Rural District Council about the introduction of drainage to the Village.  “No” said the people “We are perfectly healthy thank you”.


1925 – Sedlescombe Parish Council was asked to find people willing to try out the new-fangled electricity.  Only twelve houses were found who might be willing to try out a light bulb and then only “if it doesn’t cost too much”.


WE ARE AT THE ‘ONE LIGHT-BULB’ STAGE
WHERE WOULD WE BE TODAY IF WE HAD NOT MOVED ON TO DRAINAGE AND ELECTRICITY?


In more recent times, Sedlescombe has been at the forefront on so many occasions that it would be a travesty to lose out on this broadband opportunity for its residents

 

Nb. The Parish Council considers it very important that those WITHOUT broadband should be given a voice and encouragement. The best strategy for achieving this is still being developed but an inkling of the kind of thing that is going on can be seen HERE
