The North Northamptonshire village hall, which is the venue for parish council meetings, exercise classes, band rehearsals and a monthly village pop-up café, becomes the 49th Community Hub established by Gigaclear in its North Central region.
It is hoped the availability of ultrafast broadband at the hall will open up more commercial opportunities by extending the type of events it can stage. Former Francis Giffen Memorial Hall Chairperson Rhona Rowland said: “It’s important the village hall is self-sustaining as it is a charitable trust. It’s a valuable community asset which Gigaclear has kindly given its support to.”
