Cambridgeshire County Council – Back to school guide for parents and guardians
Welcome back to School
We have produced a helpful guide to support parents and young people as they transition back into formal education. In it we have given clear information on some of the common things parents ask us about every year, such as transport, attendance, free school meals, etc. We have also made a point of clarifying the Test & Trace process, made clear our expectation on parents to help protect our school staff, and given some ideas on how to help their child fall back into a school routine. I hope you find it useful.
The latest consultation letter issued to residents and landowners by the Parish Council has received unanimous support for the Fen Public Path 12 Bridleway. The Horse Riders Association have also unanimously supported the Creation Order. CCC have drafted the Creation Order for issue. After further discussions, The Ramblers Association has withdrawn any objection, so it’s full steam ahead!
The Fen Public Footpath 12 Closure Order has been requested between 01/09/2020 – 28/02/2021 between the hours of 6.00 and 18.00. The closure order provides the contractor Skanska with a “window” within which they can close the Public Path whilst conducting works which are expected to start September 2020. As such, the path will only be closed by the contractor when absolutely necessary. Whilst there will inevitably be some disruption, access for residents and landowners will be maintained throughout the duration of the works.
Children’s playgrounds and outdoor gym now open.
St Ives Foodbank – new Fenstanton Hub
The new St Ives Foodbank collection point is now up and running in Ash’s shop. Those items most needed will be updated regularly. If you can, please leave any donations in the collection bin.
In addition, if you know of families or individuals who may need foodbank support during the coming weeks and months, please ask them to get in contact with the Foodbank directly, or the Parish Clerk. This will be totally confidential.
