Hauxton Mill and Mill House sold

Hauxton Mill has a new owner.  o2h Ventures is a life sciences and technology company based at the Cambridge Science Park and Ahmedabad, Gujarat in India.
Work has already started on the old mill house, with replacement window and utilities being installed. Unfortunately, the new windows have been broken within days of fitting.  Sunil Shah, the CEO based in Cambridge, has asked if residents would please keep a look out for any suspicious activity of this type and report it to the police, so that work can progress unhindered.

New Playground open!

A huge thank you to everyone who turned out despite the rain and cold, to make the playground opening such a success.  To hear and see all those children descending on the new playground, with an enormous cheer, when the ribbon was cut, was almost emotional.  It was lovely to see so many of the older residents present as well as the younger generation.

Village Hall receives planning approval

After many years of planning and consultation, on 10th January the village finally gained planning approval from South Cambs DC Planning Committee, to build the new village hall on the Recreation ground as part of the vision for a new community hub. This was a unanimous decision by the Committee members, who also praised the efforts made over the years by the parish council to consult and accommodate the wishes of Hauxton residents.
