Community-led support groups

Warwickshire County Council is aware that a large number of community-led support groups, many of them informal groups, are emerging in response to COVID-19. These groups are providing invaluable local support and we’re keen to know about, engage and communicate with them.

If you are aware of any support groups we would be grateful if you could please send them the link: https://mailchi.mp/warwickshire/covid-19-community-led-support-groups?e=035b5e17a3

Fibre broadband upgrade

Did you know that fibre broadband may be available to you already?

CSW Broadband has already completed these upgrades to communities within Beausale, Haseley, Honiley & Wroxall parish:

Cabinet / Structure: Area served by upgrade:

Haseley Knob 1

Haseley Knob & Hatton – Parts of Birmingham Rd / Five Ways Rd / Shaws Lane / Mousley End areas

Haseley Knob 2

Parts of Beausale and surrounding area

Haseley Knob 6

Parts of Haseley Knob (properties within CV35 7NJ)

To find out if you can get fibre broadband:

1. Enter your landline number or address into the BT Broadband Availability Checker.

If fibre is available, either ‘VDSL Range A & B’ or ‘WBC FTTP’ will be listed in the ‘Featured Products’ column of the results table along with the speeds you are likely to achieve.

Our How to use the BT Broadband Availability Checker web page will help you make sense of the Availability Checker results.

2. Remember, that if fibre is available, you will need to order the improved service to benefit from it. Use a comparison site such as: MoneySavingExpert.com, Broadbandchoices, Broadband Genie or Cable.co.uk to find / order a broadband package that meets your needs.

What are the benefits?

Having access to faster broadband allows you to:

  • Browse the web faster
  • Stream HD films, TV shows, games and videos without buffering slowing you down
  • Talk face-to-face with friends and family using Skype, FaceTime or similar software
  • Compete with other businesses in the increasingly competitive global marketplace
  • Reduce workplace costs through remote working / working from home

 

Please Note: Not every property connected to an upgraded FTTC cabinet is guaranteed to benefit due to some properties’ distances from the cabinet and/or the quality of copper connections.

Your SNT needs you!

The Safer Neighbourhood Team would like to thank all the residents who have supplied us with information about what is going on in the community.

Residents are not always aware of what happens with the information that they have sent to the team.

Information gets collated and placed on to the Police Intelligence System. The more information we receive the more chance we have of understanding the issue, who or what’s involved and how best we can deal with it. Something you may regard as not important could be the missing piece of information needed.

This information could be on an individual dealing drugs, an address, a location or it could be information on vehicle offences , drinking driving , no insurance and more, let us decide whether its important.

The information received could be used to do warrants, take vehicles off the road, protect the vulnerable, identify an issue the requires a police operation amongst many things. All this will make our community a safer place to live.

AED – Defibrillator location

AED – Defibrillator is located at Wren Hall. 

Every year, over 30,000 people in the UK suffer a cardiac arrest out of hospital. Having a defibrillator nearby can increase the chance of surviving by up to 90%.
To support the local area and it’s community Wren hall now has an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) mounted on the external wall adjacent to the entrance door. Hopefully you will never need to use it but it’s important that you know it’s there!
