Broadband for Farlington

All of the local residents who have lived in Farlington for more than two years may remember that David carried out a survey of the Broadband speeds that were available to telephone users in our immediate area.  The results were used to reinforce our arguments for a Fibre link from Stillington (or Sherrif Hutton) to Farlington.  The situation has moved on and BT considers that it has fulfilled its commitment to provide HSBB to local rural areas but we do not appear to be receiving the, frequently promised, improved connectivity.

Village Hall – Hire

Farlington Village Hall

Farlington Village Hall is a lovely little space with a cosy log fire for those chilly winter evenings. It’s a perfect venue for around 20 people seated, or around 30 standing.

It has various facilities, which include a coffee machine with free coffee, a hot water urn and free tea, various chairs, benches, and tables, free fuel for the fire, and a portaloo.

As well as hosting the annual Parish AGM, the Village Hall has been used for a wide range of less formal events, including pop up summer cafes, christmas carols, pie n’peas night, and the curry night shown below.

So, as you can see the Village Hall is more than capable of adapting to most requirements. The question, is what could you use it for?

Hire charges for the Hall are a paltry £5/hour, with a minimum £10 charge.

To book the hall, please contact secretary@farlington.org.uk.

Continuing Road Closure

The continuing saga of the collapsed culvert and the road closure…

Work is due to commence on 4th June, and according the “Highways Customer Communication Officer”…

“It is anticipated the works will take 5 weeks to complete if all goes according to plan.”

It’s been a long old haul to get the low road fixed, and it seems it may be a while yet before we can trundle happily southwards again.
