Many villagers have already connected to Superfast Broadband.
NCC and Superfast Britain have now confirmed that Holcot is enabled for Superfast Broadband, and have provided a leaflet which you will find in the Kiosk.
To get Superfast Broadband either contact your Internet Service Provider or go to www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/buy-it-now to find out what services are available. You can also take a look at this poster!
Interested in seeing scenes of Holcot life from the 1960’s? The grandson of the Rev Frederick Beaver who was Curate in the 1960’s has digitised his grandfather’s slide collection and shared the best of them on Flickr here. There are lots of photos of the church and church life, and also general photos of the village.
You may wish to compare them to the 2015 Photographic Year photos here.
