Super Fast Broadband Coming to Bellingdon.
Some of the keen-eyed amongst you might have noticed that a brand new green metal 'box' has gone up on the junction of Bellingdon Road and Bank Green (see photo).
This is the first of 4 Superfast Broadband cabinets to be installed for our local telephone exchange area (based in Cholesbury, serving 700 houses locally). The cabinet is due to be connected over the next few weeks. The cabinet will provide Fast and Superfast Broadband, (branded by BT as BT Infinity and BT Infinity 2, but it should be available via other providers) to the residents of Bellingdon and Ashridge who have previously not been able to receive the service.
You will need to check with your Internet provider as to when the service will be available to your home. This is an exciting development for anyone who regularly uses the Internet and is very welcome news for the village.
There is an update with more info of both Superfast Broad Band and an upgrade (to something called ADSL2+ which will also improve speeds) at the Cholesbury Exchange on the superfast broadband page at www.cholesbury.com.
We have the Superfast Broadband Group (based in Cholesbury and led by Chris Brown of Rays Hill) to thank for this development.
A Royal Visit to Bellingdon
The Princess Royal, Princess Anne visited Bellingdon on the 14th of July to see the new Affordable housing in the village. Chairman of Chartridge Parish Council Peter Brown welcomed The Princess Royal and showed her around some of the properties before planting a tree to commemorate the event. Thanks to Carmel Botwright for the use of the photo.
