Goudhurst Now Leads the North Downs!!

by admin on November 30, 2010

Please continue to register your votes and campaign for the Goudhurst Exchange at:


As of this evening, we overtook the final North Downs exchange, Bridge, Near Canterbury!!  More importantly, we have moved from #54 to #37 in the National Rankings out of 2,495 eligible exchanges!  A fantastic achievement in just 24 hours!

We now have over 16% of the Goudhurst exchange who have voted – so still a way to go to win the race!  Whilst we must continue to hold the victory in the North Downs, we will now set our sights on taking on and winning the much more challenging “Downs Race to Infinity” for both the BT North and South Downs Areas!

Two South Downs Villages are leading us for the Battle of the Downs!  As of this evening (21.30), the two villages in the South Downs that we need to score better than are:

+ Lindfield with 23.28%

+ West Chiltington with 19.82%

In comparison we are:

+ Goudhurst with 16.31%

The league table is updated every 24 hours and you can find it here:


If we were to beat West Chiltington this evening, then we would need ANOTHER 80 VOTES OF HOUSEHOLDS AND BUSINESSES THAT HAVE NOT ALREADY VOTED! That is the challenge.  If you are in the village and have access to email lists and other networks, please email your friends and neighbours and ask them to vote so we can win the Battle of the Downs!

We have made tremendous progress since this website went up over the weekend.  Please keep voting and asking your friends, neighbours and local businesses to vote.  Even folk without an internet connection can vote!  If they don’t know how, please get in touch with me – lorne@btinternet.com and we can help!
