Update on ‘The Fibre to Property Broadband Group in the valley’:
Firstly, thanks you for the fantastic response from neighbours and friends to the letter from
the Parish Council before Christmas.
An ‘overarching’ independent group has been formed led by Andy Rose with
representatives from all areas running the four separate sub-groups in respect of the four
exchanges which service our area - Threlkeld, Greystoke, Caldbeck and Skelton.

We have had several ‘Online’ meetings and have progressed to the point of:-
Threlkeld - no firm revised quote from Openreach
Greystoke and Skelton - no quote
Caldbeck - no Portal yet open.
We are chasing BT Openreach for a response.

The Borderlands Voucher scheme ends at the end of March and a new scheme is
anticipated to replace it so, meanwhile, the group have asked the Parish Council to contact
‘interested parties’ to ‘lobby’ and raise the profile of our case. This will be discussed at the
‘online’ Parish Council on 8th March. The meeting is open to all parishioners, if you wish to
have an invite then please let me know.
We are also in discussions with B4RN, who along with Openreach are a company installing
fibre broadband - you may have seen their stories in the local paper the C &W Herald. In
fact there are broadband ‘stories’ or letters most weeks. Our contact with B4RN is Chris
Eakin from Mosedale.
The next meeting of the Fibre Broadband Group is on 12th April. If you need any further
information then please let me know. Meanwhile, keep safe Christine Fleming
