EDP Mobile Blackspots Campaign

6th October 2013

The Eastern Daily Press has started a campaign to draw attention to Mobile Blackspots. I am aware of a Mobile Blackspot in the region of the west of Watton and on the rail line between Thetford and Ely, and there will be others. Please support the campaign and let the Chamber know where these Blackspots are for each of the operators. We can then lobby on behalf of the area collectively. This goes together with Superfast broadband. The next announcement will be for availability before the end of March 2014. It is coming quite near with Great Ellingham, Hingham and Scoulton due to have availability by the end of 2013. To sign up to find out more go to http://www.betterbroadbandnorfolk.co.uk/
The Watton Town Team will be holding “A Salute to the ‘40s’” dance and supper at the Queens Hall on Saturday 30th November. It will be an excellent event with the Jonathan Wyatt Big Band booked. Tickets are available from Adcocks, Edwards Newsagents & Wayland House.
The following day will be the Switch on of the Christmas lights provided by Watton Town Council and the Christmas Fair.
I am coming to the end of my 2 years as Chair of the Wayland Chamber. In February we will elect a new Chair. At our last meeting we were joined by 2 students from the Wayland Academy. We welcome their insights and we are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the Academy. We always need to refresh the committee and welcome new ideas.
Start-up and trading businesses, a new process, product or idea may be eligible for a grant of 25% of the costs up to £25,000. It is not just for high-tech businesses, it could be any business; from a garage to a café, or a printer to a clothing company.
