You may have read that there is a vast amount of money to be spent in South Derbyshire to bring superfast broadband
to the area. Unfortunately the Overseal exchange is not currently in that plan. They say that they might reconsider if enough
people register an interest. It is therefore important that everybody within the district registers if we are to have any
chance of seeing fibre optics before 2020.
We must urge as many people as possible to sign up for this.
The appropriate form is to be found at:- http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/expression-gen.aspx and http://www.digitalderbyshire.org.uk/residents/register.asp
Join in the online conversation about books #DERBYSHIRE
Readers are being encouraged to share their
recommended reads and get more out of their local library with Derbyshire County Council's new online book club. The
council's library service suggests a topic for the #DerbyshireReads Facebook group each month and asks members to come
up with books on that theme. Since it launched in February themes have included ‘Books successfully adapted to film'
and ‘The best twist in a book' which have generated a range of reviews at the end of each month.
