Speen Festival 2013
Our festival this year is taking place between 1st – 15th of September, and the Grease rehearsals are already underway, it is going to be fab.
Thanks to all those who have already got involved, and if you are thinking of putting your latent skills to good use there is still a long list of volunteers needed to ensure our community festival is as successful as ever. Look out for the Spring/Summer edition of the Speen and North Dean News for all the latest news on the programme, ticketing, volunteer and sponsorship opportunities and if all else fails, check out www.speenfestival.org.
Superfast Broadband for Speen?
Bucks County Council, along with others, are seeking our support. Even without the fibre required for BT’s Infinity or Virgin’s offering an upgrade to the Hampden Row Exchange might yield speeds of up to 20mb. Registering your interest at http://www.superfastforbucks.org/ won’t cost a penny. If the campaign is a success and superfast broadband is made available on your street, you’ll be under no obligation to sign up to receive it. By registering, you’re simply helping Buckinghamshire County Council and Buckinghamshire Business First demonstrate to broadband service providers that there is a demand for superfast connectivity here in Buckinghamshire. At the time of posting this, 10,170 had said “yes please” – so go on, help boost the number.
Natural Gas for Speen?
Should Natural Gas be available in Speen? With the price increases in bottled gas recently, you may wish we already had gas on tap. You may not want it yourself, but should it be an option? If you are interested and would like to support the idea, you can send an email to Brenda Davies by clicking here.
