BT Open Reach Telegraph Poles Installation – Ellerker

Representatives from Ellerker Parish Council met with the Openreach Chief Engineer – Technical Fibre on Friday 3rd May 2024 to discuss the proposed sites of additional wooden telegraph poles required to improve and future-proof broadband speed to the village. Further information was provided for residents at the Annual Parish Meeting on Thursday 9th May 2024.

The additional poles will be on Howden Croft Hill with 2 positioned on the opposite verge and 1 near the top of the hill on the house side. There will also be 1 additional pole on Ring Beck Lane. The telegraph poles will support the upgrade of the old copper network to full fibre. Poles need to be closer together to support the upgrade but only this part of the village requires new poles due to the age of this part of the network. There will be one single new wire connecting these telegraph poles.

It was clear that Openreach and other providers have faced residents’ opposition in other villages and are taking every step they can, within the realms of what is possible, to minimize disruption and protect views from houses. Residents have had the opportunity to contact BT Openreach as per the information provided on the current telegraph poles. The benefit to residents will be an increase in Broadband speed from circa 80 Mbps to 900Mbps. The work should be completed by the end of July.

The planned installation date for the new telegraph pole on Ring Beck Lane (Opposite Holmfield) is Tuesday 14th May and the Howden Croft Hill poles on Friday 17th May 2024. The Howden Croft Hill Poles will be opposite the boundary of Howden Croft / Rosemount, Rise Garth / Hill Garth and outside Mayflower (Just to the north of the gate but shielded by the current trees).

Free activities in the Christmas holidays for children and young people

ERYC are into the second year of a 3-year Department for Education funded programme which enables children and young people who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals who attend an East Riding school to eat healthily and be active during the school holidays.  There are over 20 Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF) delivery partners organising fun activities across the East Riding during the Christmas holidays, with sessions lasting at least 4 hours and a meal is provided for each participant too.  All of the programmes are inclusive, but HAF also offer a specific programme of activities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

Attached are some flyers of all the programmes that are taking place across the county.

 

If parents and carers see something they feel their child will enjoy, all they have to do is get in touch with the provider to secure their child’s place.  All East Riding pupils in receipt of benefits related free school meals are able to attend a maximum of 4 activities for free in the Christmas holidays and there are also a limited number of places available to children and young people who have an Education, Health and Care plan regardless of their financial situation.
