Broadband update: Community Fibre Partnerships

Over the last few weeks John Dudley and I have been exploring this relatively new Openreach scheme which applies only to those who live and work in “remote” areas who cannot access the internet by fibre optical cable and who are not on an existing fast broadband rollout. We now appear to be in that category.

Put simply, the idea is that internet users in such areas should raise part of the initial costs of laying a fibre cable to the nearest telephone cabinet themselves. In our case this would mean a share of the costs of laying a cable from the nearest fibre-enabled cabinet at the Woodhall Spa end of Kirkby Lane to our local cabinet opposite the Ebrington Arms, plus the necessary electronic equipment to handle the data.

Frankly, we are sceptical. We have studied the details and asked ourselves some basic questions: Continue reading

Kirkby Lane closed again

 

Yes, it’s about those pesky mustard gas cylinders again. Kirkby Lane will be closed from from November 20 to 1.30pm November 25, due to the decontamination work in progress. To judge by the positions of the road signs the closure seems to be between the old chicken farm (opposite “Woodlands”,) and the junction with Woodland Drive.

There is also a sign at the Woodhall Spa T junction (B1191) but did nobody (e.g. Lincolnshire County Council Highways Department,) have the wit or courtesy to place a sign at our end of the lane or at the junction with Wellsyke Lane?

 

NB: According to East Lindsey District Council, who are coordinating the project, the time and date of the end of the closure has been changed to 1pm on November 25.

Mustard gas public meeting – “standing room only”

Thanks to Councillor William Gray for this report on yesterday’s mustard gas incident public meeting at the Petwood Hotel, where by all accounts it was standing room only:

“There was a thorough briefing on ‘Police Operation Saddleback’. 22 agencies have been involved. 14 ammunition boxes of have been recovered from Kirkby Woods. 13 boxes contained mustard gas bombs. These are now being destroyed safely away from the site.

10 gas canisters have been recovered from a lake in Stixwould. They had not leaked and therefore the lake has not been contaminated. 3 people have been arrested and are on bail.

A small area of land in the woods has been contaminated and decontamination will now take place.  East Lindsey District Council will oversee this operation with the assistance of professionals. Kirkby Lane will remain closed at present and the site will be fenced to prevent access. Continue reading
