Following on from the broadband problems experienced last week, David Cull has asked whether parishioners are having problems with phone quality. Here’s his note;

“Can you please ask around to see if any other residents have phone lines that have deteriorated in quality, again. We had this issue in the last 12 months and it was put down to a fault in the line between here and Walgrave. They seem to have fixed it but our phone line has got much worse in the last couple of months and I’ve an engineer booked for Wednesday through my provider. 
David Cull”
