12th March 2015 - Make It Snappy

Hornton’s calendar was such a success – selling out completely – that the village is planning another one for next year. But that can only happen with your help.

Right now, we need photos for the months of October to December and January to March, so there’s still time to get snapping – and to raid your computers for photos you’ve already taken.

The photos don’t have to have been taken this year. They don’t even need to be taken in the month they are representing. They don’t need to be taken by someone who lives in Hornton.

But they do need to be taken in the village of Hornton. After that, it’s up to you: people, landscapes, flowers, animals – the choice is yours.

Jan Hall is collecting the photos for the 2016 calendar, so if you could send them in at the highest possible resolution, they print better. Or you can send a low-resolution version and, if it’s to be used the calendar, we’ll ask you for a high-res version. The photos are also better if they are landscape rather than portrait.

5th March 2015 - Superfast?

Anyone who’s noticed that Hornton has a shiny new telephone cabinet next to the phone box might think that we’re about the get our long-awaited superfast broadband which was due at the end of last year.

Not so fast. BT have simply replaced the shell of the old cabinet – which connects most of the telephones in the village with the network, with a new one. Then another cabinet will have to be installed next to this.
