SAFETY INFORMATION FOR FLYING LEGENDS AIR SHOW

posted 27 Jun 2017, 19:56 by Whittlesford Web Master

Ahead of the Flying Legends Air Show on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July, IWM Duxford has released some important safety information that it wishes to share with local residents:

·        IWM Duxford takes great care to ensure that its air shows are as safe as possible for everyone involved.

·        ‘Secondary crowding’ is no longer acceptable at any air show and IWM has a duty of care to ensure that this is reduced as much as possible. It is therefore not safe to occupy the fields surrounding IWM Duxford during the air show. If you do so you are putting yourself and the display pilots in harm’s way and potentially preventing IWM from continuing with the flying programme.

·        In support of this, and to ensure that the emergency services have clear, unhindered access, Grange Road will be closed on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July 2017.

·        These fields around IWM Duxford are private property and IWM has been working with the farmers to prevent trespassing. Therefore there is no public access to these fields at any time.

IWM will continue to monitor these measures and ensure where possible that the disruption to the local community is kept to a minimum. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

New footpath on triangle makes safer crossing !

posted 3 May 2016, 16:48 by Whittlesford Web Master   [ updated 3 May 2016, 16:54 ]

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.
