Chris Taylor from Shropshire Council will be giving an update on when, what, how and why businesses can expect to get access to Superfast Fibre broadband.

He will also outline the funded scheme to help business users to understand how to make best use of fast broadband to enhance their marketing and operations. Participants will be able to express their interest in being involved as well as offering their views on what business facilities and services they would like to see come to the centre.

The Furniture Scheme, since taking over the management of Craven Arms Community Centre, has been exploring new avenues and opportunities to benefit and support the community.

This now includes extending the use of the Centre to provide facilities, services and networking opportunities to the many businesses which are both in Craven Arms and spread widely across the surrounding area.

“We are very pleased to be hosting this event,” said Jean Jarvis, chief executive of The Furniture Scheme.
