An Alternative View of a Persistent Problem



The purpose of this ditty

 Is to say – it’s such a pity

 We let litter and poo bags despoil our ground.

 It takes but a moment

 To care for our environment

 And transfer both safely to containers that abound.

  We live in a lovely village

 And each thoughtless spillage

 Can easily be remedied one step at a time.

 The birds will salute you

 The creatures say thank you

 And all can walk safely … without stepping in poo.





Message from the Regional Engagement Manager Anglian Water on GRAFHAM WATER

As you know we’ve been making plans to reopen safely and we know that many have been looking forward to getting back on the local trails. As we are now confident our reopening preparations are all in place, we’re very happy to let you know we will be reopening Grafham Water and our other water parks from Tuesday 2nd June.

However, there will be some changes across the park to make sure social distancing can be maintained, to protect visitors and our colleagues. Children’s playgrounds and sandpits will be closed. Cafes will be offering takeaway food and drink and toilets will be open. The cycle outlet is click and collect only to start with, but we’re asking people to check the Rutland Cycling website for more cycling information and to look at the park website as well:

It is clear that there is still a long road ahead in respect of living with Covid-19 and it’ll come as no surprise that, as with all walks of our current lives, things will look a little different for some time to come. We will be monitoring the Government’s advice and the situation at our parks as the summer progresses, and will keep you updated on any changes we need to make.

Once again, thank you for your help and support.

NEW: Mobile Post Office Service to start in January

The Parish Council is very pleased to announce that from 14th January 2020, a new Mobile Post Office will be making weekly visits to Great Paxton. It will be parked in The Bell Car Park, 50 High Street, Great Paxton, close to the Community Shop.
This is a travelling Post Office, located within a mobile vehicle which will bring Post Office products and services to the local community. The Mobile Service is provided directly from the vehicle which is carefully designed with a fully fitted Post Office counter inside which means customers will be able to carry out a wide range of Post Office transactions. There is a step into the Mobile vehicle, but an electronic tailgate is available to facilitate easy access for wheelchair users and those with disabilities. Please can I encourage you to use this new service.

The Mobile Van will visit Great Paxton every Tuesday between 2-4pm!
