Hilary Benn and the Rural Experience

Oasis is a rural business located on the edge of the Cotswolds on the Oxfordshire-Gloucestershire border.
We have just had a visit here in Moreton-in-Marsh from Hilary Benn MP, the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs as part of the Rural Experience programme run by the Commission for Rurual Communities.
The Rural Experience is an initiative to inspire senior people from government, public and private sector organisations and the voluntary sector to make a positive contribution to rural communities. They came to talk to Oasis to hear about our experience of using broadband in this rural area.
The results of the visit will be incorporated into the governments Digital Inclusion Action Plan which is designed to deliver their Universal Service Agreement by 2012 and a forthcoming CRC report to the Prime Minister and Lord Carter, the minister for Communications, Technology and Broadcasting, on digital inclusion in rural areas.

Bucking Camel

This is an unusual alternatve to the real camels that can be hired out through Oasis and our suppliers.
The clever people at funtime hire have found a way of using the 'bucking' bit of their 'bucking bronco' by adding a camel 'hat' onto it!
Its not as authentic as the real thing and looks a lot less comfortable.
