Rural Broadband
Broadband can be slow in villages and Ardeley is no exception. A resident at our last Parish Council meeting in March 2019 reported to councillors that he had recently signed up to the Government run ‘Broadband Subsidy Scheme’ and is now receiving vastly improved internet speeds. I am sure this information could be beneficial to many of our parishioners. Below is a couple of helpful websites to give you more detail on the scheme including the company that the resident signed up to.




Defibrillator - Volunteer Emergency Telephone Scheme
The council have funded a VETS (Volunteer Emergency Telephone Scheme) system for use in the Parish (Ardeley, Cromer, Woodend and Moor Green).  We have a group of ten volunteers who can bring the defibrillator to you in an emergency.  In an emergency, after ringing 999, you can call 01438 301911 for a volunteer helper. When you call the number, all ten volunteers are called at once.  The first person to answer will be connected directly to you. The defibrillator is very small and lightweight about the size of a bag of sugar.  It is in a locked cabinet in the phone box, fitted with a light, in case you need access at night time.  The key code is given to the person who calls 999.  This is a great asset to our community, which has been proven to save many lives. 

From UK Power Networks
Do you or someone you know need extra support during a power cut?  Although power cuts don’t happen very often when they do they can be worrying.  UK Power Networks is the electricity network and it provides a ‘Priority Services Register’ for people who might need extra help in a power cut.  Older people, families with very young children, and people with specific medical conditions are among the many people who are eligible to register for free support.  You can find more details and register by visiting ukpowernetworks.co.uk/prioritysupport or calling 0800 169 9970.
