Working from home? With full fibre we could all enjoy a more flexible future...Register your interest at cityfibre.com/your-street
Over these past weeks, many of us will have adopted entirely new ways of doing everyday activities, such as attending meetings, completing coursework, joining exercise classes and catching up with friends and family. Likewise, many of us will have realised that all these activities now have one thing in common: a digital screen.
This ‘new normal’ demonstrates exactly what we already suspected – digital technology has transformed our lives. And now, in these unprecedented times, we are utterly dependent on its ability to provide us with a socially-isolated gateway to normal life – work, the high street and entertainment, as well as the comforts of friendship and family we all need at times like these.

What’s all this I keep hearing about full fibre – what’s the big deal...?Digital connectivity has become a hot button issue. Almost all major political parties have pushed it up their own agendas in the past year, recognising the importance of connectivity to the wider electorate.
Yet despite headline grabbing soundbites, few seem to fully grasp what full fibre connectivity actually means. Currently much of the UK is using a copper-based legacy network. Some of this network dates back to the Victorian era, so you can see that it is well overdue an upgrade. At present only around 12% of the country has access to full fibre networks. These networks differ from what most of the country currently has in that they use fibre optic cables to connect the exchange directly to each premises #gigabitAW (photo credit Adur and Worthing Council).

‘Name Your Drain’ (Part of the Adopt-a-Drain initiative in Tarring)If you are (or want to be) one of the wonderful volunteers who keep an eye on your local drains to make sure they are clear of debris and work effectively (in order to prevent flooding), then why not ‘Name Your Drain’ and enter Tarring Flood Action Group’s competition? It’s just a bit of fun for all age groups during these difficult times.
Your chosen drain name might be inspired by its function, its location, maybe from the text on the drain itself, or you can just pick a name at random!
The most interesting/imaginative/funny will receive a prize presented by Tarring Councillor and outgoing Worthing Mayor Hazel Thorpe and you might even get your picture in the next Inside Tarring Magazine!
