The Boot On The Other Foot For B4RN’s Jorj

Jorj is awarded her spade by Barry. For services to Heversham.

To our volunteers, Jorj Haston is a familiar face. She usually doles out the spade awards to them but recently got a taste of her own medicine.

A personalised spade was made and presented to her by Barry, a champion in Heversham, during a short, socially distanced break. It’s in recognition of all the help she’s given communities over the last few years.

It was appropriate the award, at the end of October, happened during a day of heavy rain and strong wind – Jorj was still out there helping people get their gig despite the weather.

Jorj previously got a spade back in the days she was volunteering with B4RN for her local community, so this makes her an extremely rare DOUBLE spade holder. The only other such instance is Frank the Blow, awarded his B4RN spade for Cantsfield but then receiving one from Overtown too (as well as the keys to the city!).

Well done Jorj!

The spade reads: “Just Flippin Splice IT B4RN Jorj”

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.
