The work to install the Gigaclear fibre should be starting soon and will involve extensive road closures in Coaley and surrounding areas.
The Street will be closed between Waterend Farm and Elmcote Lane on the 24th August 2021 between the hours of 09.30hrs and 15.30hrs. This is to allow for works by BT Openreach. This will impact people going to Cam and Dursley Station and much more time will be needed to get there. We've been provided with the attached map of the official diversion via Far Green, Ashmead and Cam. Note that diversions have to be able to handle all the traffic that would be expected on the closed road, so they are not always the most direct route round the closed section.
Coaley Community Orchard is at Far Green. Planting started in March 2021 so at the moment the orchard is in it's early stages. We currently have ten heritage apple and pear trees and plan to plant five more in early 2022.
Gloucestershire Highways have informed us that Frocester Hill and Peak Lane (aka Levers Hill) will be closed between 7th January and 20th January excluding weekends. This is to allow the removal of trees infected with ash dieback. Please see the notice and answers to frequently asked questions below.

The coronavirus crisis and lockdown is a challenging situation for everyone in the village. People who are having to self-isolate, either because they are ill or want to avoid getting ill, will need considerable help and support.
The most important thing people who are not self-isolating can do is to make sure their self-isolating friends and neighbours are OK and offer to help them with anything they require. If they don't have internet access you could offer to help them complete the I need help form below.

The Gigaclear rollout seems to be in a constant state of flux. The latest news is that the Coaley installation will be completed by the end of 2019, which is a year earlier than the last update we had. See https://www.gigaclear.com/fastershire-rollout-schedule/ and click on Area 3e - South Gloucestershire. On the map Coaley is area 2 (Far Green, The Ham, Tickshill) and area 19 (everywhere else).
