The Parish Times for August is now available on the parish website at bishopstoneandhintonparva.org/parish-times/ Please note the request for people to validate their pledges for fibre vouchers only applies to a small number of postcodes (114 addresses) where we discovered no-one has any plans to install fibre. The people needing to validate know who they are as they have already pledged. If you are not one of these, someone, somewhere already has plans to bring fibre to you, probably under BT's Universal Service Obligation. We can't find out any more than that at this time but will share information as it emerges. ... See MoreSee Less
