Residents in the North Yorkshire village of Snape are set to be able to get connected in their local village hall and surf the internet in comfort and style.

We have funded two laptops for use by North Yorkshire villagers, one which will be used at the village hall, known as Snape Institute and the other at the Methodist Church Hall. Meanwhile, the village hall will soon be connected to Quickline’s full fibre broadband network enabling a host of new activities to take place.

The donation from Quickline, totalling £4,825, will also pay for new chairs for the Institute and contribute towards ongoing building improvement works including double glazing and solar panels.

Sarah Lowe, chair of Snape Institute, said: “A very big thank you to Quickline for the funding which will not only support our current project but will also cover essential works needed for the village hall to become more eco-friendly and more viable”.

Julie Holmes, Quickline’s Social Values Manager, said: “We’re on a mission to connect rural communities and ensure those living and working there have access to fast and reliable broadband. Through supporting Snape’s village and church halls, we are helping to provide connectivity in a way that will benefit everyone in the community.”
