Denton residents have been saddened by the news that the Chair of the Parish Council is standing down.
At the end of the Council's January meeting Kay Wiltshire announced that she was resigning from the position of Chair and from the Council itself for personal reasons. Other members expressed their regrets and thanked Kay for her excellent service over the last two years. Similar comments are circulating amongst other Denton residents. Kay has done a great job and will be sadly missed.
The Council's Vice-Chair, Terry Hanner, will take over the helm until the whole Council comes up for election in May.
Use of the pool table at the Village has increased recently but the condition of the baize on the table has deteriorated.
At their recent meeting the Hall Management Committee decided to get the table recovered. They are also investigating installing a jacking system which would make moving the table around, for events etc., much easier.
Some good news for those residents struggling with low broadband speeds was announced at this month's meeting of Denton Parish Council.
While new fibre links have been installed for some of BT's Green Boxes serving the village not all households can take advantage and their owners are not happy.
At the DPC meeting on 8th January our local SNC Cllr., Dr Murray Gray, reported that the District Council were trying to get round this problem by installing wireless broadband connection systems in poorly served areas across South Norfolk. This was intended to ensure that every SN resident had access to a 10 Mgb service.
One potential site for a transmitting mast for this system is the top of St Mary's Church tower. Watch that space!
