    Pole crew arrived! 4 way traffic lights in place. Amazing.

    They will be there 3 or 4 hours. The guy on the crew says a week is very quick!!! They do the poles and wires and then we will then need Openreach to connect us to exchange etc.

    A huge step forward so nearly there. Yay!!!

    Dear All

    Here is the latest from Openreach on our phone lines and broadband :

    "I've been escalating this case with our contractors who'll be carrying out the pole replacement. Openreach doesn't have any pole teams working in this region at all, so all pole work is done through our partner, Telent.

    "There is a national shortage of pole teams at the moment which means all pole jobs are being delayed. I can assure you that this work does have maximum priority, but there are also other pole jobs that too have that highest level of priority, we are working through them as quickly as we possibly can. I have made the permitting team aware of your contact with the local council and that they're looking out for when we get the permit submitted. The pole team does need to carry out their own safety survey first though and it's this we're just waiting on at the moment.

    Dear Residents

    Nearly a week on from the telegraph pole being hit we still have no date for the pole to be replaced and hence ours landlines and broadband back. Even 4G has been poor which has made any communication very difficult to say the least.

    I am in touch with the Chief Execs Department at both Openreach and BT.

    Dear All

    Last Friday night (3rd Sept) Chirbury experience a shocking fatal road traffic accident. The driver of a Ford Kuga was killed after hitting a telegraph pole on the Churchstoke road and then the wall of West House at the junction of the A490. The house was damaged too.

    The emergency services and our local police were truly brilliant.
