Rural broadband advice on offer tomorrow

FOLLOWING the launch of the government’s £20m national fund to support rural community initiatives aiming to improve broadband provision, Action in Rural Sussex is running events to help villagers prepare their bids.

The four events will outline the details and criteria of the scheme.

Those attending will receive a pack of information to help them decide whether applying to the fund is the right approach for their community and guidance on how to go about this.

There will be an event at Billingshurst Village Hall tomorrow (Wednesday, December 14) from 2pm-4pm.

Anyone who would like to attend should contact Claire Reynolds, Action in Rural Sussex, Sussex House, 212 High St, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2NH.
