Matlock's free WiFi service in the District Council's Hall Leys Park is available from today, Thursday February 14.
Anyone with a WiFi enabled device can log on to the service free of charge by searching for the service - called 'Hall Leys Park' - and using the logon code matlock1.
Announcing the launch, Mayor of Matlock Cllr Peter Wildgoose said:
"Matlock Town Council is proud to be leading the way in offering free WiFi in Hall Leys Park. We have worked hard with partners at Derbyshire Dales District Council and at Peak Support Ltd to develop a sustainable plan which we believe will meet the public demand for online accessibility on the move and make sure everyone in Matlock has the opportunity to get connected this Valentine's day."
Derbyshire Dales District Council Chairman and Deputy Leader Councillor Geoff Stevens MBE said:
"The District Council is proud to run and maintain a park recognised by its Green Flag status as one of the best in the whole of the UK, and the addition of a free WiFi facility further enhances its pulling power both for local people and the many visitors who pour into Hall Leys Park every day of the year."
