Meeting with Tom Pursglove MP

A meeting has been arranged with Tom Pursglove our MP on Friday September 24th @ 12 o'clock to discuss the issues and problems caused by the flooding last year. All those who are interested are welcome to join the meeting and should gather outside the village hall.

Broadband

Many of the properties outside of the village are struggling with decent broadband speeds Which has become particularly apparent during lockdown with zoom / teams meetings / remote working and learning / school children and university students working online, extremes of weather upsetting the connections.

BT Community Broadband have begun to investigate the most viable ways to pull the fibre out of the central village with government funding available through voucher schemes.

The whole of the village may be eligible for government funding through a voucher scheme with £1,5000 per resident and £3,500 per small business (sole trader / partnership / limited company) Speeds of 80 to up to 1500 meg would be achievable for as little as £25 per month. As a community, the more who join in the more beneficial it would be to whole village.

If there is any interest, please contact the clerk at Brigstockcouncil@aol.com

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Think NHS 111 First

NHS England and NHS Improvement has launched the next phase of the latest 'Help Us, Help You' campaign which focuses on the NHS 111 service as a new way to access A&E.

If you have an urgent but not life-threatening medical need, make sure you contact NHS 111 first rather than going straight to A&E. If you do need urgent care, then NHS 111 can now book you in to be seen quickly and safely in A&E.

As well as this, NHS 111 is also able to direct to or book an appointment at Urgent Treatment Centres, access to Out of Hours GP Services, pharmacies, emergency dental services and walk-in clinics. Contacting 111 first will also help the NHS to keep you safe by maintaining social distancing and ensure that you receive the right care in the right place, in a more timely and safe way.

If you or your loved one have a life-threatening illness or injury then you should always use 999 and if you do arrive at A&E without contacting NHS 111 you will still receive medical care, with emergency treatments prioritised.

Just think 111 first. When you think you need A&E, contact NHS 111 by phone or online at https://111.nhs.uk/ Further information about NHS 111 First is available at www.northamptonshireccg.nhs.uk

Post Office Services Returns to Brigstock

We are delighted to let you know that we will be restoring Post Office Outreach service in Brigstock from Monday 5th July 10 - 12. This service will operate from new location - Village Hall, 8 Bridge Street, Brigstock, Kettering, NN14 3ET. The Outreach service in Brigstock previously temporary ceased in May 2020 due to the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use.

Policing Priorities

We would like to know about any crime or anti-social behaviour that is causing you concern and if there is anything specific you would like us to focus on. We'd also like to know how safe you feel when out and about in your neighbourhood and whether you think the police are doing a good job at tackling local crime and disorder. The survey takes just a few minutes and we would really appreciate you taking the time share your views.
