This Thursday the 5th May. we hope many of you will be voting in our local elections to elect the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgesgire police area, and for Councillors to South Cambridgeshire District Council for the Whittlesford ward.
Voting takes place from 7am - 10pm this Thursday at The Memorial Hall, Mill Lane, Whittlesford.
The Whittlesford Parish Council were up for election this year, but having 3 councillors stand down, and only 3 new candidates coming forward, we remained within our quota and therefore we do not have to have a parish election.
The parish council would like to thank Ann Beeby, David Cressey and Catherine Tompkins for their contributions made to the parish council over the years, and we will be welcoming 3 new councillors at next weeks meeting on Tuesday 10th May, where we annually at May's meeting re elect our council and sub committees.
Everyone is invited to attend at 7.30pm.
Also coming up next week is our Annual Parish Meeting, on Friday 13th May also at 7.30pm at the memorial hall, once again everyone is invited to attend, and we hope that everyone has received their May edition of The LOOK magazine with the annual reports and agenda.
The Bees in the Wall .... or rather its Landlord Lawrie Childs has been recognised by CAMRA.
Campaign for Real Ale, and been given a lifetime achievement award for services to the pub trade.
Lawrie Childs has been landlord of The Bees in the Wall for nearly 35 years, since buying the free house back in 1982.
He has seen many changes in the pub trade over the years and some of these changes have not always been for the better, with so many of our local pubs closing every month, Lawrie feels very humble to be hanging on to a very unpredictable trade.
Lawrie was invited by CAMRA along to The Hopbine in Cambridge to receive his award, his framed certificate now hangs very proudly on the wall in the public bar of The Bees in the Wall.
Lawrie always welcomes new and old customers, so if you are passing please do call in and continue to support your local and village pub.
Advance BBQ tickets are now on sale from The Bees in the Wall and The Whittle Shop at a cost of £5 for Adults and £2.50 for Children.
Please note that the advance ticket sales are to calculate numbers attending, ticket can be redeemed at the bbq on the day.
We are hoping to have many village clubs societies and businesses taking part.
Please do come along and support your village pub and this memorable village event organised and promoted by The Millennium Group, and sponsored by the Parish Council.
A recently installed new footpath on the the Middlemoor triangle can only make crossing the road safer !
With more and more young families at the north end of the village, it became apparent that something had to be done to make the triangle safer.
The parish council took it upon themselves to improve safety with the installation of a footpath to allow walking, cycling and crossing the road a much safer place,
The parish council would like to thank the Highways team and local tree surgeons who removed dead trees and Ivy to improve visibility of oncoming traffic coming at you from all directions. Both parish council and local residents are delighted with the end result.
After many refused planning applications and a year to build, we were both delighted and honoured to be at the official opening of our 8 new affordable homes to rent and buy in Newton Road. The new homes, 5 of which are rented and the other 3 are available on the part buy / part rent scheme and managed by the CHS Group.
Heidi Allen our local MP for South Cambridgeshire came along to cut the ribbon, and we were joined by the parish council and some local residents of Newton Road.
