A clever bit of investigation by Robson James has established that Jurassic Fibre are on our doorstep and it is they who are responsible for the traffic lights between Haselbury and North Perrott. At the moment they are in the process of laying a new Superfast fibre connection to our village.
Jurassic Fibre offer a true fibre service that can include “dedicated telephone”Homephone” if required. It is unlikely to improve your existing telephone or broadband performance, as they will fit a new fibre connection directly to your property. To benefit you will either have to wait until you can cancel your existing agreement (without penalty) or run two contracts until your existing one runs out.
You can see the different contracts on offer by clicking here and it would be a good idea to register your interest by filling in their online form. At some point soon, I assume that we will be included in their coverage and new customers will be able to sign up online?
As soon as the first properties are connected, it will be reported here so that everyone can fully understand what service is on offer and the true costs.
EDIT 11/01/2023 – The response from Jurassic Fibre currently is that “full fibre” in North Perrott is only months away. Probaby a bit soon to be standing by our beds?

There’s nothing like singing carols to really get everyone into a festive mood for Christmas.
This year there are two opportunities in North Perrott to clear out your wind pipes and really belt out your favourite tunes.
Everyone is welcome at both events, so lets have a good start to the festive season.
SUNDAY 18th December at 3pm, there will be a Carol Service at St.Martins Church led by Rev. Bob Keys. Mince pies etc following. (There is no nativity this year but anyone wishing to get involved next year, please contact Alison Stevens)
WEDNESDAY 21st December at 6pm, on the Village Green. Mince pies and mulled wine will be served.
For the third time in almost as many weeks, there has been another incidence of a serious attack of sheep which has resulted in the loss of valued animals.
Two occurances were in Hardington Marsh and last night at the Manor Farm, North Perrott.
In all cases, dogs are the chief suspect and all incidences are reported as having taken place overnight.
Please report on 999 if you see a dog attack on stock or if you witness evidence of people “working” dogs at night.
When walking on farmland, please keep your dogs under close control and in sight at all times. An alarming rise in dogs attacking sheep in the North Perrott, Haselbury and Hardington areas has been reported over the last few years and the Police are involved in trying to aprehend those responsible.
Those wishing to reflect on the momentous events happening at the moment and mark the selfless service of Queen Elizabeth II during her reign, are invited to gather on the village green at 7.45pm this Sunday 18th Sept.
A minute’s silence of National Reflection will be observed at 8pm followed by the National Anthem.
