Much has changed at Trumpington Farm Company in the last year. Firstly after nine years as Farm Manager for TFC Andrew Crossley has moved to the team at Thurlow Estate near Haverhill. In 2007 the operational running of TFC passed to Richard Pemberton from his father Antony, who continues to manage the Peterborough operations. In November, Richard welcomed David Knott to the team, who brings his wife Sue and family from Lincolnshire. As the new General Estate Manager, David is responsible not only for farming matters, but also wider estate issues. Read more

Now it is illegal to squat and it has become a criminal offence to do so, perhaps the law makers will make entry onto private land a similar offence. Heaven only knows how much it costs nationwide to evict these people and clear up the mess and filth many of them leave. Come on Mr Page, start the ball rolling in the Sunday Telegraph.

I would like to make you all aware of three recent dwelling burglaries that have been reported in the village in Church Street and New Road. Whilst we can’t categorically confirm they all took place at a similar time, it is possible that all occurred within the last 24 hours.
Yesterday in New Road a bungalow was broken into by forcing a rear kitchen window and jewellery was stolen. It is believed the offence occurred at around 8.20pm and the offender was disturbed. A similar offence took place on 21st November, also in New Road, when a house was burgled and jewellery was also taken. This was at dusk time. Read more
