Proposed road closure

Proposed road closure, School Lane, 24th October to 1st November. Comments by 3rd August to
Description of Works:
School lane – Sewer main connection works
As part of Cambourne West infrastructure works a new sewer connection is to be carried out at School lane onto the existing sewer main within the carriageway.
Excavate a trench from the north east verge onto the carriageway to install a new sewer main.
A new manhole is to be installed over the existing foul sewer main in the middle of the road and the new connection is to be the main to link with the existing network.
Following the sewer connection, the excavated trench and the manhole are to be backfilled using the type1 subbase and consolidated up to the underside of the asphalt layer.
The carriageway is to be reinstated fully and the road markings are to be reinstated prior to opening the road to the public.
All temporary signs are to be removed and any damaged verge/footways are to be reinstated.

Cambourne Community Fete

We have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Cambourne Community Fete that was to be held on Saturday 12th September. It is highly unlikely that the Government will allow mass gatherings at events and we feel it will be extremely difficult for attendees to socially distance. Our priority is ensuring the safety of Cambourne residents, and that we are doing our best to prevent the transmission of Covid-19.

Play Areas Opening

Following Government Guidelines all playgrounds in Cambourne will reopen from the 4th July 2020.
Please Note: The sand and water park will not be opening on the 4th July 2020 whilst social distancing issues are resolved to ensure the safety of the children.

Celebrating VE Day 75th anniversary safely

As you will know, the May Bank Holiday was moved to Friday 8th May, to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. We have come across numerous posters and social media posts with ideas on how to mark the celebration and we want to ensure this is done safely by adhering to social distancing.
Traditionally, street parties would be held with households coming together to share food, play games and socialise. Unfortunately, during these times these events have to be cancelled, but you can still celebrate from the safety of your home and garden.
Things you could do:
– Decorate with bunting outside or inside your home
– Have a picnic in your garden
– 2 minute silence on your doorstep at 11am
– Play games with members of your household
It is important to stress that households should not be mingling in close proximity. Please ensure that you are keeping at least 2 metres apart from people that are not part of your household when out on daily exercise.
Picnics on village greens and open spaces are not permitted.
You can find bunting and posters to print, cut out and colour in at this website:
