Mobile Coverage Campaign Continues

Andrew has continued his campaign for improved mobile phone coverage having now met with all of the main mobile phone providers; EE, Three, Vodafone and most recently 02 Telefonica, to discuss local concerns. Andrew is regularly contacted by constituents struggling to get decent phone signals, with some unusual tales of the extent people have to go to get a signal!

Andrew surveyed thousands of residents earlier in the year and presented the findings in a report to each company. Andrew met them personally to stress the impact that this has on residents, particularly in rural areas, and each company has outlined their improvement plans.

Andrew says, “I would like to thank residents for continuing to pass on their concerns which I have been able to raise with the operators. Last month I met both 02 and Vodafone to keep up the pressure on companies to take the necessary steps to improve mobile phone coverage for customers in the constituency.

All of the companies have explained their improvement plans and I have asked them to keep me updated on this issue. I hope to be able to update residents further in the near future and I will continue to meet with the companies until we get the service locally we are all paying for!

Normanby Hall Splashpad 

Andrew recently joined residents and local Councillors for the official opening of the new Splashpad at Normanby Hall.

The Splashpad, situated next to the education rooms, will operate between the hours of 11am and 5pm daily throughout the summer and was made possible thanks to £200,000 of funding from North Lincolnshire Council.

Andrew says, “I used to really enjoy visiting Normanby Hall as a kid myself and it’s great to see that the venue is keeping up to date with the latest facilities for families. We were joined by some local kids who gave it their seal of approval and it will be good to cool down with on hot summer days.”

Brigg Arches 

Andrew helped organise a drop-in at the Buttercross in Brigg the other week to view possible designs for proposed arches to be installed over several of the courtyard entrances in Brigg.

Brigg Town Business Partnership is continually looking for ways to attract and increase the numbers of visitors to the town, with plans already in hand to produce leaflets as well as business information boards at key locations.

Brigg Town Business Partnership has been developing the arches project with North Lindsey College and North Lincolnshire Council with the view to installing arches, depicting historic scenes.

Andrew says, “Brigg Town Business Partnership is keen to work with businesses and local residents to promote the town and the wide range of attractions on offer. The partnership has been working with North Lindsey College on the idea of installing arches, to promote the history of the Courts, with students preparing the designs which were on show last week.

It was really positive to see so many residents and businesses turn out and support the idea. I’ll continue to work with the partnership and others to promote the town.”
