New Broadband Cabinet 'Northchapel 5' - Lurgashall - Now accepting orders

The parish council has just been informed by "West Sussex Better Connected" that Lurgashall's cabinet on the corner of the green (known as Northchapel 5) is now live and providers should be accepting orders for faster broadband. This cabinet only serves around the area of the green so you will have to use a broadband service checker - like Better Connected from WSCC to see what is available to you.

Fibre now on offer from BT to properties along Hillgrove Rd and Upperton Rd and increasingly west of the village green.

Neighbourhood Alert & Sussex Crime Watch

The old Neighbourhood watch is now partnered with neighbourhoodalert.co.uk where you can sign up to receive email alerts from NW as well as the local police farmwatch and other such newsletters.
