  • The Institute

    The future of The Institute is uncertain after the chairman, chief executive and trustees resign after voting to put it into liquidation. New trustees have been appointed and the Institute has opened for the summer term while its longer term future is being decided. For the latest updates please see hgsi.org.uk.
  • Restoration of Central Square Flower Beds

  • Your chance to get super fast broadband in the Suburb, north of A1

    Most streets north of Falloden Way between Westholm and Gurney Drive have slow internet. BT have no plans to upgrade to high speed fibre broadband - they say it's uncommercial. Mike Freer MP and some affected residents have found a way together, residents can make it happen.
