Play Area Improvement Project
The project has now been completed and was officially opened on 30 December 2017.
It has greatly improved the facilities for children in the village and enhanced the play area and playing field.

While the BDUK2 rollout of upgraded broadband services to Moulsoe is still a long way off we are pleased to announce that an improved broadband now available in Moulsoe.  Independent ISP IDNet has been working with Moulsoe Parish Council and Cranfield University to develop a wireless broadband solution to service Moulsoe village and beyond.

There are already a number of active connections in the village with speeds ranging from 10Mb to 50Mb (dependant on location) and these users have indicated that they are happy to share their experiences with other residents.

Since Moulsoe has been categorised as a sub-2Mb standard broadband area there are grants available to cover standard installation of the new service. The Better Broadband Scheme is under constant review and grant value and availability is not guaranteed as BDUK assesses available funds, so, if you are interested in improved broadband, you should apply as soon as possible so you do not miss out. For more information about the service and the grant, contact IDNet at moulsoe@idnet.com.
