As regular visitors to this site will have seen, B4RN was visited by the Secretary of State for the DCMS, Maria Miller on 29th April. Feedback from the visit deemed it to be very useful with all participants saying it was very worthwhile. Following the visit, B4RN received the following note from Mrs Miller

“It was great to be invited by the tireless local MP, Eric Ollerenshaw, to learn more about B4RN and I would like to thank the entire team for hosting such a welcoming and informative visit. It was a great opportunity to see a project on the ground that is being delivered by enthusiastic, committed, community-minded individuals – a lesson to us all. It has certainly helped stimulate some thinking within the Department and I wish you every success with your future plans.”

This was a very welcome response but as the saying goes, “Actions speak louder than words”. Let’s hope that the visit has stimulated some different thinking in the DCMS and shown that there are alternatives that can serve the rural areas better than some of the DCMS’s current plans.

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.

We juggle two jobs from home, and it’s just been a game-changer. Just sign up! It’s the best internet service I’ve ever received, and I’ve moved a thousand times!

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.
