BT broadband

There's lots of talking about high speed broadband - but nothing has changed here in Pen.

However I did think it worth sharing that following lots of complaining to BT and getting nowhere they offered me a cheap deal. I declined at first because I wanted a faster better service, but in the cold light of day I realised I wasn't going to get that for a while so I pushed for the the deal.

fatal injury

A few days ago a horse in a field near Long Lane became frightened , jumped out of the field and broke its neck falling in to Long lane.On the same afternoon another horse was badly cut in a wire fence.There is no proof,but the strong likelihood is that these horses were chased by dogs.If dogs are under proper control this sort of tragedy wont happen

Village Hall maintenance

Posted for Ian Steadman:We have nearly three weeks before our hirers start returning and it would be good to use this time to get some small jobs done at the hall.  Major jobs are underway with Rob Doody but we can do some paint touching up, cleaning and simple maintenance both inside and outside the hall.  It will probably lend itself to some joint activities and some individual tasks so if you can spare any time between now and September 5th please give me a call on 841041.Continue

Mobile phone provider 6 Replies

Hello. First time poster to the Pen Selwood website. Not sure if this is the right location for a query like this, but here we go.I have an O2 phone which has a good signal most of the time, but then drops out to nothing intermittently. It's not the phone, and I suspect it's another provider's mast nearby crushing the signal.Anyone have any advice on the best mobile provider for the village? We're up near the church.Andrew WarrenContinue
