Receive up to £500 towards your Internet connection

Wessex Superfast Rural INternetSuperfast rural Internet provider Wessex Internet are named as suppliers of the Superfast Dorset and Connecting Devon and Somerset schemes.

The scheme will provide a subsidy of up to £500, in the form of a voucher code, to fund the installation of a new broadband connection. It is available to those that are not currently able to access Internet speeds of greater than 2Mb/s and will not benefit from the fibre deployment within the next year. The scheme will run for one year up until March 2017 and is open to individual residents, small businesses and communities.

Pentridge is an area covered by the Superfast Dorset scheme, and it is expected that most residents and small businesses will be eligible for this subsidy to cover the cost of installation.

Wessex Internet Managing Director, Andrew Skipsey says, “This will be great to help us serve more remote areas and potential customers where we already have a presence where BT speeds are slow.”

In February they celebrated reaching their 1000th customer and they have recently been named as the 2nd fastest non-FTTP provider in the UK, by Thinkbroadband’s speed test undertaken by customers.

Pentridge Village Fete – Company Sponsorship

Pentridge Village FetePentridge Village Fete – Company Sponsorship Opportunities

Your company could sponsor Pentridge Village Fete, or any of the individual events or competitions.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your donation, we will add your company logo to our website homepage and to our PDF brochure.

Your donation doesn’t have to be money, e.g. a local butcher or farmer may wish to sponsor the barbecue by donating the sausages, or a local company could donate the prizes for the Fancy Dress Competition as sponsorship.

Following sponsorship, you can also provide us with a sign or small/medium banner advertising your company, which we will be happy to display during the Fete.

You could sponsor:

  • Fun Dog Show
  • The Bar
  • The Barbecue
  • The Cream Tea’s and Cakes
  • The Fancy Dress Competition
  • The Best Cake Competition
  • The Children’s Traditional Games
  • The Fete itself

We are also looking for a sponsor for our signage. This is a little different as it would involve covering a printing budget, however your company logo could be on every sign!
This sponsorship option may be suited to a local estate, lettings or land agent who could use their own signs.

If you are interested in Sponsoring Pentridge Village Fete 2016 or any of the individual events, please email
