Received today from Richard Lloyd, Executive Director of Which?

People suffering from slow broadband will now be able to leave their provider without penalty.
This morning, Which? hosted an event with the new Chief Executive of Ofcom, Sharon White. She announced a revised Broadband Speeds Code of Practice that has several measures we've been campaigning for.These include -
Giving customers more accurate written information about the speeds they will receive.Making it easier to exit contracts if you get slow speeds.

We know unreliable broadband speeds drive consumers crazy. That's why 71,000 people have signed our petition for faster broadband and they will welcome these first steps to help.
People deserve to get the broadband speed they pay for. We'll keep the pressure on, but I wanted to let you know about today's good news.

Action Fraud has seen an increase in the number of small to medium sized businesses being contacted by fake bailiffs requesting payments for a phantom debt. The scam involves the business being cold called from someone purporting they are bailiffs working on behalf of a court, attempting to recover funds for a non-existent debt. The caller will then request payment by means of bank transfer and if this is refused, will threaten to visit the premises to recover the debt that is owed.A range of different businesses are being targeted; including Nurseries, Manufacturers, Hotels and Taxi Services.

As in previous years ESCC are producing a booklet giving details of the various Activities and Events that are taking place during September and October 2015 (to include Older Peoples’ Day on the 1st October 2015).  This year’s theme is ‘Full Life’.
The deadline for inclusion in the booklet is the middle of June 2015 and the organisers are really keen to include activities taking place in the more rural areas.
If your group / club / organisation would like to hold an event / activity, that would be open to new members or people that haven’t taken part so far, this is an opportunity for you to do so.
Entry into the booklet is free of charge.
If you would like to advertise an event / activity please let us know at webadmin@hadlowdown.com as soon as possible so we can then arrange for you to receive a template to complete.

By clicking on this line you can also download an updated Funding Bulletin which you may find of assistance if you are looking for funding.
