Superfast Broadband- available Butter Street/Bulls Head Yard area

CSW Broadband are delighted to advise us that all the hard work has paid off and that superfast broadband is now available in parts of central Alcester around the Butter St / Bulls Head Yard area! Cabinet Alcester 15 has been upgraded, meaning that properties connected to the upgraded cabinet may now be able to order the improved service. Please note that some lines that were previously connected directly to the exchange have now been routed through this cabinet so will now also be able to order faster broadband.

For you to check which cabinet you are connected to and what speeds you might achieve, please visit https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/. For the best results you will need to be able to enter a BT landline number for the property. If you do not have this then you can use your address, but it may be less accurate. It should be noted that customers are not restricted to buying a service from BT and that you can go to any Internet Service Provider (ISP).

There are a number of different Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and it is best to check carefully as there are a wide range of packages available, with some including telephone calls and even TV options. Websites like MoneySavingExpert.com and Broadband Genie can give free, impartial advice on cheap broadband deals and provide information on which packages might be best for specific needs.

It’s time to get your flu vaccination!

It’s time for residents across Coventry and Warwickshire to think flu and get protected by having their flu vaccination.

One in three people in the region are entitled to a free vaccination. Last year, most people offered the vaccine chose to be immunised. Those able to have free vaccinations include people aged 65 and over, pregnant women, children or adults with serious medical conditions and carers.

GPs, pharmacies and antenatal clinics are offering the vaccination – making it as easy as possible for people to get their vaccination booked.

A nasal vaccination is available for all children aged 2 and 3 on 31st August 2017 (born between 1st Sep 2013 to 31st Aug 2015) from GPs and the vaccine is being offered at school for children in Reception and school years 1-4. Make sure your child has the vaccination and doesn’t miss out.

Simply contact your GP or pharmacy to arrange an appointment today. It’s quick, safe and free for those most at risk.
