The council have been informed that certain residents have been advised by BT via e-mail (no scam) that their copper line will be replaced by fibre, the problem arises with a fibre line that if there is a power cut there is no means of emergency communication, especially as the village does not have mobile telecommunication. The council have informed Steven Pugsley who is a member of the Exmoor Park Authority and councillor for Exmoor on West Somerset and Taunton District Council and he has agreed he will take up this problem for the village. This item will be on the agenda at the next council meeting at which Steven attends. We will of course keep you up to date with progress.
Have a nice day.
