Cobhall Common Flood Alleviation

The Parish Council have agreed to contribute £3,000 towards a new pipe to take away flood water from the bus stop area in Cobhall Common. A number of houses have been flooded here in the past few years.

Total cost is around £10,000 which needs to be raised quickly as we only have a short window of opportunity to do the work.

A fundraising appeal was launched following a residents’ meeting on 9th November. The current total pledged is …

GREAT NEWS!

Thank you to all the helpers, cake bakers, book donators, card makers, wood crafters … and everyone else who came to the coffee afternoon at the village hall on Saturday 13th; lots of happy people raised another £329!!

The tremendous response to the pledge appeal has meant that the original estimated target of £10,000 has already been met. However, we will continue to accept pledges in case the final figure is higher than we thought.

If, as seems likely, too much money is promised by the time we are ready to place an order, we will collect a proportionally reduced amount from each person. So, the more pledges received the better, as the cost will be shared between a greater number of residents.

Gigaclear deployment now under review

Around 18 months ago Fastershire announced revised plans for its contractor Gigaclear to install fibre direct to the premises. For the properties in Allensmore that have not been covered by the previous stages (i.e. Church Road, Green Farm Lane and part of the A465) this was a major delay with the start in this area then scheduled for Q3 2021. Fastershire has now announced that this deployment is under review with the suspicion that Gigaclear may no longer proceed with it. For more information see the Broadband section.
