Wessex Internet High Speed Broadband now available

I am pleased to inform you that Wessex Internet now have their mast on Conneygore Hill operational and are able to offer high speed broadband services to North Cheriton and District residents who are in line of sight of the mast.

Although this means many properties are now able to go live, unfortunately there are a number of properties in the heart of North Cheriton that will need an alternative solution. This would mean identify suitable properties/land for additional boosters.  To do this they would like to set up a meeting, in the Village hall, to discuss this issue, whilst a the same time answer any implementation and/or cost queries.   They will also inform us on how to place orders and explain the process of applying for the subsidy vouchers, available from Somerset District Council, to assist covering installation costs.

The date they had in mind was Wednesday 20th July at 7:30pm.  Could you please let me know if you are available to attend this meeting so that I am able to give Wessex Internet a rough idea on numbers.

Pilgrim Singers Evening – 9th July

We are very sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances we are having to postpone the Pilgrim Singers concert planned for the 9th July.

The plan is to reschedule this musical evening for a weekend date sometime in the Autumn of 2016.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Hello from Wistaria Cottage

As new incomers to the village we would like to introduce ourselves – we are Andrea (Andie) and Julian and have recently moved into Wistaria Cottage. We look forward to meeting more of our fellow villagers and becoming more involved in village life in the future!

Many of you will have seen that Wistaria Cottage (yes, that is the spelling in the Land Registry!) has had a makeover recently with new thatch and the chimneys repointed and made safe again. We apologise to you all for any inconvenience we might have caused in the village during the thatching process,
especially with the scaffolding, and hope that you find the result nice to look at either from your windows or whilst out and about walking the dog! A big special thank you from us to Antonia in Edwards House who suffered the most with her driveway entrance severely restricted by the scaffolding; you have been most kind during the whole process.

As part of the ongoing ‘beautifying’ process, we are having the pointing on the front of the cottage replaced with traditional lime mortar pointing. This process should begin on Tuesday 21st June, weather permitting. We have been informed that in order to remove the older pointing, the builders will make some noise using various electrical tools and we do hope that the noise generated during the removal of the pointing doesn’t cause too much of an inconvenience to our fellow villagers. Once again, we do hope that you like the final result when the work is finished!

Andrea and Julian
