Worcestershire Superfast Broadband Project

The parish clerk has received an Autumn newsletter from the County Council about the roll out of Superfast Broadband, which is a government initiative to make available download speeds of 10 Mb/s or greater.

You can find out more about the roll out of fibre on the website:-


On the above website you can enter your phone number to find out whether superfast is currently available, view a map showing the timetable for rollout to rural areas, and register your interest.

Guarlford village is probably too far from the nearest broadband cabinet to get 'superfast' now, and the map suggests no urgency to provide before 2018, but it might help if as many residents as possible registered their interest.

Guarlford Village Hall

Guarlford village hallGuarlford Village Hall can be hired at very reasonable rates. Situated in an old malthouse it has been a village hall since 1922 and a registered charity since 1949, all achieved by Guarlford residents from the past.

It has an attractive function room with exposed beams which give it a character all its own

The kitchen has a good supply of crockery and because the function room is on the first floor there is a stair lift for the disabled.

There are ceiling and wall heaters to keep the function room warm in the cold winter months.
