There is a lot of activity from the various community teams around the B4RN area. The latest has been this weekend in the picturesque hamlet of Abbeystead. Some may recall that this was the village that suffered the tragedy where 16 people lost their lives and 28 were injured in the pumping station explosion on the evening of 23 May 1984.

The video here shows the team working to lay duct to the stunning village hall and demonstrates the equipment available to the B4RN team, most notably the ground radar that provides a much more detailed view of what is underground allowing digging to take place with a high confidence.

Keep an eye on the site for more updates soon.

Stories from out in the field from our very happy customers

One residential customer in Over Kellet used to know whether it was worth firing up her computer by looking out of her front window to see what the weather was doing with her telephone line.

It has allowed us to improve our farm business through the implementation of Wi-Fi heat detection ankle bands on our herd, and thus improving our business productivity.

OMG it is amazing! I don’t want to go back to London, which was faster than here, but not now! Just to say a BIG THANK YOU to all you guys, what a great thing you are doing. I’m shocked not everyone is signing up!
Customer in Norfolk
After lambing 1300 ewes a good film is what I want to watch and because we have B4RN that is no problem. Just enables me and my family to get on.
