BROADBAND

Kent is one of 17 councils across the country benefitting from a £22 million boost to the Government’s Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme.

People in Kent can now claim up to £5,500 per household and up to £3,500 per businesses from the Kent Top Up Voucher Scheme. The new scheme can only be used in conjunction with the Rural Gigabit Voucher Scheme and will give both homes and businesses a combined value of up to £7,000 per eligible premises.

A minimum of two households or businesses are required to access this funding, so it’s good opportunity for streets or whole communities to come together to improve their broadband. The extra funding should help to make more improvements financially viable. 

The Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme supports rural areas where the cost of building new broadband infrastructure is too high for commercial operators alone.

You can check whether your area is likely to be eligible for a rural gigabit voucher by using the voucher scheme’s postcode checker.

This is a limited scheme until March 2021, and Kent County Council are keen to make sure as many eligible premises as possible take advantage of the extra funding.

For more information about the scheme, contact Kent County Council at kentvoucherscheme@kent.gov.uk or call 03000 42 00 09.

News

East_SuttonEast Sutton, along with Sutton Valence and Chart Sutton is one of the Three Suttons, a triplet of parishes occupying an east-west strip of countryside that tumbles down a steep hillside into The Weald. 

It is a largely farming community.  The 14th Century church of St Peter and St Paul has a Jacobean pulpit and a late 13th Century font.

There is a magnificent brass of 1629 to Sir Edward Filmer, his wife and their 18 children.   The village hall is named after the Filmer family who played an important part in the history of the parish.  Their home was Sutton Park, a rambling red brick mansion built mainly in the 16th and 17th Century

Laterly the house has been used as a borstal in 1946 and more recently as a prison for both adult and young offender women in open conditions.
