Here’s what you do. Read more

Trumpington Meadows Primary School

The process of public consultation prior to submitting the plans for planning permission for the Trumpington Meadows primary school is now beginning. As the school will be in the Haslingfield Parish and will include community facilities for the village, it is therefore of interest even to residents without school-aged children.

The plans are not now going to be displayed in Waitroses’ foyer as it is felt that it is too close to Christmas and would be too crowded!   However, they can now be viewed online at  http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/education/schools/planning/ 

Please send your thoughts and comments on these and other elements of the design proposals to robert.lewis@cambridgeshire.gov.uk, by Wednesday 5 January 2011.

Volunteers Wanted to Help Vulnerable People with the Digital TV Switch Over

Support our outreach work in Cambridgeshire’s villages and towns.  How we receive our television signal is changing. At the end of March 2011, the current analogue signal will be turned off and replaced with a digital signal that you will need special equipment to receive. The national “Switchover Help Scheme” has been well-publicised but there will still be many people who do not understand what Switchover is about and these are likely to be the most vulnerable people in our communities.
