Come along on Thursday 2nd October at 2pm to Alston House Hotel and find out more about the new broadband services which Cybermoor and Briskona are bringing to Alston Moor.
Cybermoor Ltd is holding a General Meeting for members to learn about the new services and upgrade plans. This follows on from the last Cybermoor AGM in July when there was enormous interest in how Cybermoor would be developing broadband services with its new strategic partner, Briskona.

Alston Moor is currently facing major challenges with regard to its existing school provision and it is looking highly unlikely that all three schools can continue to operate as they are currently. This is due to a decline in the number of children attending the three Alston Moor schools in recent years, both from the Alston Moor area itself and those choosing to send their children from neighbouring Durham and Northumberland. At Samuel King’s pupil numbers have dropped from 183 in 2004 to 120 this year, while at Alston Primary numbers are now 102, compared to 163 10 years ago and at Nenthead Primary, there are now 22 pupils, compared to 29 in 2004 (see roll number table at the end of this article for pupil numbers over the past 10 years).

We are currently looking for new people to join the Board of Directors for Cybermoor Ltd (which runs the website and health projects) and Cybermoor Networks (which owns the fibre infrastructure). Cybermoor was established in 2003 and has developed from a fledgling project into a rapidly expanding social enterprise. To maintain this momentum, we are looking for new Directors to join the board of Cybermoor Ltd and Cybermoor Networks Ltd to complement our existing skills. You don't need to be an expert on technology – we are looking for people from all walks of life.
