Village Christmas Tree sponsorship

Following the success of the Christmas Tree on the Village Green last year, the Parish Council have decided to continue with this tradition each year by purchasing the tree and using the lights you generously sponsored last year.  The purchase of the tree and the provision of the electric power to the lights is quite costly, so we are giving the villagers a chance to sponsor the tree again this year.  To save the fees of crowdfunding, sponsorship should be sent directly to the Parish Council bank account via bank transfer, or cash or a cheque can be accepted.   Please contact the Parish Clerk on or 01223 870269 for details.

Update: Resurfacing works on New Road

Cambridgeshire County Council has informed us that the resurfacing works are now substantially complete and New Road has now re-opened.  The contractors have advised that they still need to: replace the ironwork on 7 manhole covers, finish off some works to the kerbs and finally complete the line painting.

This work can all be undertaken without road closures using localised two-way traffic control.  They have scheduled these final elements to be done Tuesday 26 October and Wednesday 27 October.
