We’ve continued to make excellent progress in the South of Hornby this month. All Station Road properties that have requested a connection have now had boxes installed, duct connected back to the chamber and fibre blown. Duct has also been installed and blown to 7 properties on Strands Farm Court. B4RN has blown core fibre to both the Strands Farm Court and Main Street chambers but we are waiting for them to fuse the properties.
Great progress has also been made behind Main Street West with duct now installed between the chamber and 1 to 23 Main St. Also, the dig to the wall of the Castle Inn has been completed and next we will install black duct for the Hotel & Lingard properties. Finally, work is in progress to plan and get wayleaves for the other two remaining parts of Hornby: the remainder of Strands Farm Court and Hornby Hall Close East

How time flies: We are very nearly one year old! The singing group started in May last year with the intention of meeting once a month for a singalong. However the individuals who came wanted more, so we moved to alternate weeks and then in September added an evening group to enable those who go out to work to come and sing. Now we have a singing group every week either in the afternoon or evening
Currently we have about 20 members some of whom have been in other singing groups/choirs but for a number of people this is the first time they have ventured into the ‘land of song’ . Our musical director Dan Adams keeps us busy and at present we are practising one or two songs to sing as part of the Gathered Voices concert on the 6th May in St. Margaret’s Church at 7.00pm
Evenings 7.00pm – 9.00pm: 2nd 16th, 30th
Afternoon 9th, 23rd 1.30pm -3.30pm
