Local Cybersafe Warwickshire Presentations in March

Criminals are finding more sophisticated methods to steal from us, and it is a full- time job keeping abreast of it all.  That’s why we have asked the Cyber Crime Team from Cybersafe Warwickshire, promoted by the Office of the Police Crime and Commissioner, to come and share their knowledge with us. They gave a brief presentation at our AGM which ., even in its shortened version, was enlightening.

We have arranged a shortened version for the members of Earlswood Lunch Club onWednesday 13 March and the full version, open to all residents will be on Thursday 28 March at 19:30 at Ladbrook Park Golf Club in Poolhead Lane.

We are very grateful to the golf club for their offer to host the event as we could not find a suitable evening at either of the village halls.  You will be able to buy drinks and food at the golf club should you wish.

We urge you to attendees cyber crime is becoming more sophisticated by the day and sound advice is essential. Joe and Abbey, from Cybersafe Warwickshire, will be presenting and we expect it to last about one and a half hours, with time afterwards to speak to Joe and Abbey.

Cabinet 10 in Earlswood is now connected to Superfast Broadband

We are delighted to advise you that all the hard work has paid off and that superfast broadband is now available in parts of Wood End & Earlswood. Cabinet Earlswood 10 has been upgraded, meaning that properties connected to the upgraded cabinet may now be able to order the improved service.

To find out which cabinet you are connected to what speeds you might achieve, you should visit the BT Broadband Availability Checker. For the best results, you will need to be able to enter a BT landline number for the property. If you do not have this then  use your address, but it may be less accurate. It should be noted that customers are not restricted to buying a service from BT and that can go to any Internet Service Provider (ISP).

There are a number of different Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and it is best to check carefully as there are a wide range of packages available, with some including telephone calls and even TV options. Websites like and Broadband Genie can give free, impartial advice on cheap broadband deals and provide information on which packages might be best for specific needs.

The ‘About Broadband’ section on the CSW Broadband website has lots of information about Internet Service Providers, a very useful jargon buster to help people to get through the sometimes baffling terms surrounding broadband, and lots of self-help guides so that users can get the most from the new, improved service.
