The following and attached have been received from Cambs County Council.  They seem to be confirming the speed limits on the A1123 through the Parish as there are no changes.

However, the Parish Council is considering asking them to extend the 40mph limit west from the cemetery to past the junction with St Ives Road, Houghton with regard to safety issues with the cemetery and the potential Guided Bus Stop

Parish Council elections Thurs 3 May 2018

posted Mar 16, 2018, 5:30 AM by Lois Dale   [ updated Apr 13, 2018, 4:23 AM by Site Administrator ]

The election for a new Parish Council (scheduled for Thurs 3 May 2018) has been declared as Uncontested. That means there were insufficient nominations to cause a poll therefore those people nominated have been declared duly elected as Parish Councillors (Notice of Uncontested Election issued by HDC dated 7 April 2018). 

Please note that elections for District Councillors will still take place on the 3 May.

5 current Councillors chose not to stand again and no new candidates came forward so there were only 4 nominations and therefore the new Council  will come into being on Tuesday 8 May 2018 with the following Councillors:

Ray Baxendale,     David Bonny,       Steve Hodgson     and      David Keane        and 5 vacancies

This is not a desirable situation especially as 4 is the minimum number of Councillors to take votes (quorum).

However the new Council is able to coopt additional Councillors to fill the vacancies. If you are interested please contact the Clerk who will tell you the procedure.

Cambridgeshire Scrapbook

I’m Mike Petty, the Cambridgeshire local historian, formerly of the Cambridgeshire Collection.

 For more than 20 years I have been compiling A Cambridgeshire Scrapbook. It comprises over 3,000 pages and more than 20,000 fascinating facts, features and (occasional) fallacies reported in Cambridge newspapers between 1897 and 1990. It is arranged week by week – so you can check to see what was hitting the headlines whenever you first took an interest in the area and how it has developed since then

It is free to read, free to download, free to use. Just search ‘Cambridgeshire Scrapbook’ on your computer or tablet.

 I have also put together scores of mini-scrapbooks including areas of Cambridgeshire. 

These Scrapbooks reveal some of the events that have helped shape the community of today and put the present in its context. They are not comprehensive but are worth a look.

They are free to read, free to download, free to use. Just search '[your parish] Scrapbook'

 To see the full range of Scrapbooks and other resources to help you discover our area just click ‘bit.ly/CambsCollection

It’s my way of saying ‘thank you’ for all the help folk have given me over more than 50 years of trying to discover something of this fascinating county.

I hope also it will draw attention to the resources of the Cambridgeshire Collection, which has been an essential part of Cambridge's public library since its establishment in 1855. Long may it continue to be freely available to folk of all ages and ability in the heart of the city that established and nurtured it.
