Windows 8.1

One of the most frequently heard complaints about Windows 8 is the loss of the Start button.

With the release of Windows 8.1, a free upgrade to W8, the Start button makes a welcome return. it’s slightly different how how it worked before in that you need to right-click on it to active the menu, otherwise you’ll just end up back on the Tiles.

Superfast Broadband Project

A Public Meeting is being held at 6.45pm on 7 March 2013 in the Great Bentley Village Hall.

Essex County Council (ECC) has contacted parishes advising that it would like to discuss its Superfast Broadband (BDUK) project with local communities. There are sure to be lots of people locally in Great Bentley who are interested in obtaining increased broadband speeds and for those people it would be helpful to understand this project and what it will bring in terms of faster broadband. ECC expects many questions on where and when the work will start and be ready.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
