As previously reported back in February, Beth Barrett entered this year's London Marathon to raise funds for cancer research in memory of her late father, the much missed George Porter.
The event took place last weekend and, as the "before" and "after" pictures below show, Beth completed the course and was awarded her medal.
Beth's original fundraising target was £2,000 but, thanks to the generous support of many people including a number from Denton, the result, including Giftaid, was over £4,000. She would like to record the biggest possible thank-you to everyone who contributed.
As some residents have noticed, in the last few days another green telephone cabinet has appeared in the village close to Sunbeam Cottage in Norwich Road.
It seems that BT had not informed anyone of its arrival or purpose. The only hint came through the notice of the required road works via the County Council. It is presumably intended to provide a fibre optic link to properties on the northern part of the village and give them access to better broadband.
Presumably, as with the box installed last year at the end of Middle Road, those with lines transferred to the new box will not be notified but will have to install a suitable broadband hub to take advantage of the new facility.
