This week we find out all about Cybermoor, Alston Moor's community owned co-operative who brought Alston Moor well and truly into the 21st century in 2002 by providing the community with access to the internet well ahead of other rural areas. This was thanks to an innovative government scheme – 'Wired up Communities.' Since then Cybermoor has gone from strength to strength continually making sure Alston Moor has access to the most recent technology.

 


You can watch a short film of Daniel Heery, Cybermoor's Project Manager tell the full story.

Next week we find out about a social enterprise which is the beating heart of its village - Nenthead Community Shop which was established thanks to a determined group of residents who refused to go without a village shop when the the old one closed down.
