Fibre broadband comes to North Leigh

on 22 February 2014 - 7:22pm

Lucky residents of North Leigh village will soon be able to order "superfast" broadband from BT. Sharp eyed residents have noticed new roadside cabinets being installed in the village indicating that fibre has been pulled into the village and equipment installed.

Residents of North Leigh parish further afield can only look on enviously at the moment. New Yatt, East End and Wilcote are unlikely to be included in the upgrade. At least for New Yatt the reason has become obvious - the old BT cabinet that serves the entire village is in fact about a mile outside of the village.


Hare Coursing

Hare Coursing is illegal.

Thames Valley Police have recently issued the following press release:

It is the time of year when hare coursers and poachers are about, so please be aware and report any suspicious activity to police via the 101 number straight away. Suspicious activity could be any of the following:  

  • Groups of vehicles parked up in a rural area, perhaps to a gateway to farmland, bridle paths, farm tracks or grass verges.

  • There will usually be estate cars, 4x4s or vans. They may have evidence of dogs inside like muddy paw prints or dog hairs.

  • Hare coursers

Broadband Update

on 9 September 2013 - 6:56pm

As many of you will be aware, OCC has now published the map of areas of the county which will receive a broadband upgrade from BT. At the moment the map is only indicative and is likely to change as BT surveys each area for suitability for an upgrade.

North Leigh village is currently listed as being part of the upgrade but East End, New Yatt and Wilcote are all excluded.

What does this mean for residents of the parish?
