Play your part to increase broadband speeds in North Lincolnshire

North Lincolnshire Council is working with telecoms providers to bring ultrafast broadband to the area and needs local people to play their part by completing a simple form.

The council is asking people and businesses to register their interest in ultrafast broadband by filling in this form Opens in a new window .

Ultrafast broadband provides download speeds of up to 1Gbps (1000Mbps). It is also known as ‘full fibre’, ‘fibre to the premises’ and ‘fibre to the home’.

If people register, there will be no obligation to buy into any service that may become available. Telecoms providers and the Government would fund any upgrade to the network.

If installed people can then choose whether or not to purchase an ultrafast broadband contract.

To have the best chance of your area being upgraded, ask local businesses, friends and neighbours to register their interest too.

Play Area Refurbishment

The refurbishment of Redbourne Play Area is now complete.

Located in the centre of the village, the play area benefits from a new Orchard Teepee climbing frame, a Toot slide and a Nest swing (pictured above). An existing swing frame has also been upgraded. Along with the current equipment, the new activities will enable the play area to be used by a wider age range of children – from ages 4 to 12 year olds. Supported by adults, children with disabilities can also enjoy outdoor play.

Children are already using the play area and have reported how much they are enjoying using all the new equipment.
