Full Stream Ahead for Gymnastic Genius

The Henry Cort Community College Hillson Drive, Fareham PO15 6PH

Tel: 01329 843127

 8th July 2014 

Talented gymnast, Keira Wellesley-Davies (14) is celebrating after hearing that she is going to Iceland in October to represent Great Britain in the European Championships. This is a result of winning gold at the teamgym British Championships recently in Stoke.

Keira has been enjoying gymnastics from the age of two and has been with the Portsmouth School of Gymnastics in Farlington, Portsmouth for a decade. She is passionate about team gymnastics which is when a group of gymnasts perform a synchronised floor routine. Dynamic and fast, the team perform streams of impressive tumbles, vault and trampet work rather than the more traditional beam and bar routines.

Keira has an intense training programme and typically trains 8 to 12 hours per week with her squad. In November 2013, the impressive group of girls, all aged 13-16, won the International Cup in Gran Canaria. As part of the prize, the squad won a weeks stay at an Italian training camp organised by UEG (European Union of Gymnastics), which Keira and her team-mates will enjoy in August.

Keira said, “ I just love being part of this team, the girls are like my second family.”

Mrs Wellesley-Davies, Mum to Keira said, “We cannot put into words how proud we are of the work and commitment Keira puts into everything she does.”

Mr Phil Munday, Executive Principal at The Henry Cort Community College said, “We are very excited to hear about Keira’s latest achievements and wish her every success with her international trips.”

BT Superfast Broadband - July 2014

BT Superfast Broadband Whiteley

BT have indicated that any Whiteley cabinet not already enabled for superfast broadband is now unlikely to be included in BT's Commercial Deployment because they deem it not viable. This means that many cabinets in Whiteley may never be enabled for superfast broadband.

FTTC fibre broadband such as BT Infinity (upto 80mbps) needs your street cabinet (pcp) to be upgraded with a FTTC (Dslam) cabinet as well as your local exchange to be Fibre enabled before you can get fibre broadband.

Not all the cabinets in a FTTC fibre enabled exchange area will be upgraded, so some areas in that exchange area will be unable to get fibre broadband at this current time.

If there is no mention of WBC FTTC when checking the BT Wholesale Database then unfortunately it looks like your cabinet isn't currently in Openreach's fibre broadband rollout plan. 

Click here to see what your looking for in the BT Wholesale Database

Your options are now to live with shared 8mb (in reality this is much less than this due to contention) or residents privatly funding an upgrade of the cabinet by grouping together to pay for this. Or you could wait for government funding.

Please be aware that the Whiteley and Park Gate Exchanges have been enabled. It just that some cabinets have not been upgraded due to the technical limitations of BT's network in some areas. Sometimes, the costs of deploying superfast fibre means it's not commercially viable for BT to provide it without external funding. 

Cabinets not enabled

Cabinet 55 - Does anyone know the position regarding this one?

Cabinet 57 - Estimated cost to upgrade £20k

Cabinet 104 - Awaiting a power supply upgrade. ETA from BT wholesale is Sept 2014 although this has slipped before.

Cabinet 105 - Estimated cost to upgrade £15k
