Sadly, after 7 1/2 years of trading, Country Kitchen will be closing its doors at the end of August. As always, thanks go to the wonderful support from our lovely customers in and around the village and I hope you will join me in thanking the Country Kitchen partners and staff for the superb job they did in keeping the shop open, and well stocked during the tricky pandemic times.
Work will start in September to bring the building up to current building regulations standard (particularly the fire regulations), and to properly demarcate the division between residential and commercial space. Some demolition will take place on the single storey extension at the back, and it’s the perfect time to replace the windows with conservation sashes, and carry out some general work to refresh the building and smarten it up.
The least sustainable building is one that is empty, and as a great believer in sustainability, we’ll do our very best to complete this work as soon as possible. Watch this space for updates!
Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) has funding for families who receive free school meals for their children, due to the benefits they receive, to have fun with their friends and enjoy new experiences at a local holiday scheme this summer. The Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme is funded by the Department for Education (DfE) and is co-ordinated by CCC.
An eligible child will be entitled to up to 64 hours of free holiday childcare through the school summer holiday period. A meal is also provided as part of the offer and children will have much needed social contact and physical activity. Parents can book places directly with participating holiday schemes. More information can be found at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/haf
