Compton Martin Parish Council Updates and information about Compton Martin Parish.

Ring O Bells Compton Martin

Dear All, these are very difficult times but you are not alone.

We have been working hard over the last few days to put in place a support network for ALL Compton Martin parishioners. We now have an extensive list of volunteers ready and willing to support any parishioners who need to self-isolate and also to look out for the most vulnerable members of our community.

Volunteers will be allocated to different areas of the Parish and a leaflet drop will take place in the next few days to provide contact details for anyone needing support. It would be helpful if anyone who is ‘at risk’ (over 70, pre-existing medical condition, pregnant) or who is currently self-isolating would let their volunteer know. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence and only used to help support people during the Coronavirus pandemic.

For those self-isolating:-

- We are currently trying to put arrangements in place with Harptree Surgery to be able to pick up and deliver prescriptions.

- We will pick up shopping and any urgent supplies.

- We will pick up and post mail.

- We are happy to just have a chat on the phone with anyone who is living alone.

We are not able to offer medical advice. Current NHS Guidelines should be followed.

The Ring O’Bells, Compton Martin is offering a free delivery service for meals ordered from them. Call on 01761 221284.

https://www.facebook.com/RingOBellsCompton/

Spar (Bowdens) in West Harptree is offering a home delivery service for newspapers and groceries which we will be supporting. Call on 01761 221338 or e-mail [email protected]

The New Manor Farm Shop is offering home deliveries to all. Call on 01761 220067

http://newmanorfarmshop.co.uk

The situation is very dynamic and we will provide updates as and when we are able.

Thank you on behalf of the Parish to all those that have already helped and to those that have volunteered.

Stay safe

Chairman

Compton Martin Parish Council

Friends and locals, Miles & Luca, Matt & Fiona recently took over the pub from Butcombe this year and have restored it to all it's original glory. With a revamped menu and guest ales, they hope to make the pub the heart of the village once more.

BROADBAND UPDATE
The TrueSpeed project for our area has now been approved by their own board and they expect to hear back from their investors this week to confirm the go-ahead.
Their offer of of a free standard installation voucher (worth £120) to anyone who signs a contract with them is currently still available but is expected to be withdrawn at any time.
If they are unable to deliver Ultrafast Broadband through a standard installation to your house within six months (now expected Q1 2018, but no confirmed roll-out plans) then you are no longer committed to that contract.
If you have a contract with another provider and you sign up now then your contract with TrueSpeed simply starts at the point your current contract runs out.
TrueSpeed are also offering free Broadband access for life to Compton Martin Village Hall and Ubley School.
If you want to place an online order with TrueSpeed you can do so here:-
http://info.truespeed.com/order-form
or there are some order forms available in the old school room and village hall.

OpenReach have provided two quotes to install a FTTP (Fibre to the Property) solution after their recent survey work. This would involve significant community investment (of the order of £62.5k to reach the vast majority of the Parish or £34.5k if 21 'hard to reach' properties were omitted. This assume a £30k grant is still available due to the existence of the Ofsted inspected Montessori Nursery). It would appear there is other funding available through BANES but we are waiting on clarification of the details. OpenReach would expect to deliver their project within 12 months of any community contract being signed.
Some of the potential benefits of this scheme are the fact it is based on tried and tested technology which has already been rolled-out in, for instance, Cornwall and Wales and the infrastructure would be open to multiple Broadband suppliers who would be able to offer a wide range of products at different prices as well as creating price competition.

The Connecting Devon and Somerset Ultrafast Broadband provider, GigaClear, have yet to announce details of their roll-out plans in the area. You can register your interest using the link below:-
https://gigaclear.secure.force.com/community/SurveyInterest?pc=BS40%206JD&ref=sAmCUbjo4_mOsB_gZj3ORJc2Jfy8YyNVHcWmQkirLjxyr_sjLNMrYLzYNu4fHGzt&_ga=2.255772928.960015332.1511174350-1491218678.1489422443

Currently they are stating:-

Gigaclear and Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) are
working together to bring the UK's fastest broadband to your community,
as part of several build phases between now and the end of 2019.
Gigaclear will be installing a new Fibre To The Premises broadband
network in your area over the next 3 years bringing speeds from 50Mbps
up to 1000Mbps to properties included in the project. Currently,
Gigaclear and CDS are finalising the rollout schedule for the coverage
area and will send out communications to the properties involved as
soon as the scheduling process is complete. In the meantime you may
register your interest by clicking the button below. This does not
commit you to anything, it just allows Gigaclear to keep you informed
on progress with the rollout. You can find out more about ‘Connecting

Good news!

Superfast Broadband suppliers, they’re like buses. You don't see one for years then two come along together.

For anyone who has not yet heard, both TrueSpeed and Gigaclear have announced they will be rolling out Fibre to Property solutions locally.

As a Parish Council working party we are not currently in a position to specifically endorse either of the proposed solutions. We await further information. However, we wanted to share the news and ask everybody to register their interest (without commitment) with both providers. The TrueSpeed roll-out is 'demand led’, they require at least 30% of households to register an interest (it is currently 15%). It is likely that the Gigaclear's roll-out will be influenced by demand as well, although we do not
have the details yet.

TrueSpeed have secured £75 million of private money to finance their roll-out:-
http://www.truespeed.com/news/2017/truespeed-secure-75-million
To register your interest in TrueSpeed go to:-
http://www.truespeed.com/query
They will be arranging Q&A sessions in Compton Martin Hall. Planned for August and September, dates to follow.

Gigaclear have been selected by Connecting Devon & Somerset to roll-out locally as part of phase 2 of the national, government sponsored, roll-out:-http://www.bathnes.gov.uk/latestnews/thousands-get-ultrafast-broadband-connections
