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.
High Street, Harston overnight closure
High Street, Harston will be closed over the nights of 8th to 10th May inclusive, from 20:00 to 06:00. This is for line removal and carriageway patching. During recent footway improvements the kerb line was altered and this means that the road markings need to be updated
Melbourn – Cambridge Greenway cycling routes through Hauxton
The Melbourn to Cambridge Greenway is part of the Greater Cambridge Partnership cycling/walking strategy and the route options are now open to public consultation.
There are three possible routes through Hauxton, and residents are invited to give their views and preferences. The options are shown on the image above as A, B and C. Note that route C means cyclists will ride along Donkey Lane, along Church Road and then across Church Meadow and around the edge of Hauxton Meadows on the existing riverside pathway – Footpath Number 1.
