  Village Heritage Displays

The Village Hall could become the setting for a permanent display on the heritage of the village. Tom Cave, Chair of the Parish Council is trying to track down a number of trophies and certificates that were awarded to Worlaby over the last century. Many of these were held by the late Nan Machin, who would produce them for Village shows. He recalls some being on display in the Old Chapel, many years ago.

There were certificates that recognised the Village contribution to 'Warship Week', together with some relating to raising funds for Spitfires and the like during the war. There were also a number of shields and cups that were awarded for sports events and horticultural efforts. The Recreation Committee agreed with his suggestion that it would be nice, if they are retrieved, for them to be located in the Village Hall as a display on the Village heritage.

These would be alongside the more recent 'Best Kept Village' awards and the many achievements we hope to get in the future. We’d love to hear from you if you know where any of the trophies and awards may be stored, or if you have something relating to the history of the village that may be suitable to be put on display. Please contact the Parish Clerk, Deb Hotson.

Superfast fibre optic broadband now available in Worlaby

The Northern Lincs Broadband project is funded by BDUK (central government), the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), BT and North Lincolnshire Council. The project is upgrading the local broadband network using fibre-to-the cabinet (FTTC) technology. This technology provides speeds of up to 80 mbps, depending on the distance a property is from the local telecoms cabinet and the product purchased from an internet provider.

Superfast broadband is classed as 24 mbps or above. It provides many benefits to homes and businesses. Multiple people can use the internet at the same time, videos and documents can be downloaded without buffering, online gaming experience is improved and international phone calls can be made over the internet with little interference, saving time and money.

The telecoms cabinet that serves most properties in Worlaby is on the junction of Low Road and Carr Lane in Worlaby. This cabinet is now live with fibre optic broadband but internet speeds do not increase automatically. If you would like to access the new, faster network, you need to contact your preferred internet provider. The network is open to all internet providers, so shop around for the best deal for you, your family or your business. Be sure to check the detail of the product you choose though, as different providers offer different speeds and download limits. The cheapest option may not always be the best option.

For more information about the project or if you have any questions and superfast broadband in Northern Lincs, please visit www.investinnorthlincs.co.uk, phone 01724 296926 or email nlbb@northlincs.gov.uk .
