Minutes of the Parish Council Meeting - November 2000.

The following were amongst items discussed at the November 2000 meeting:

Reduced Speed Limit along Oakington Road.
The new 40mph speed limit is now in operation along the Oakington Road.  The Parish Council hopes motorists will abide by this new limit which will increase the safety of those living on this road as well as those using the facilities along the road.

Application to WREN
The Parish Council's application for a grant from the Waste Recycling Environment Company to fund a BMX/Skateboard ramp on the Recreation Ground will be considered in early January of next year.

Parish Office
The Parish Office is now located in the pavilion building.  The Clerk can be contacted there in the mornings (telephone C. 472181) between 9am and midday on Monday through to Thursday.  The Sports Development Officer, John Baggaley can also be contacted at the pavilion on C. 472183 regarding use of the sports facilities.

The Pavilion
The building is more or less finished now, with the builders finishing off a few last jobs.  The Parish Council would like to thank everyone for their input into this developmental project and looks forward to seeing the pavilion put to good use.  John Baggaley is taking bookings now for use of any of the facilities, including the Assembly Room, which serves well as a function room for parties or meetings.   Thanks go out too to Mr and Mrs Huxley who partly funded the smart clock on the exterior wall of the building above the balcony.

Memorial Service
It was nice to see so many people at the Remembrance Service last Sunday.  This important occasion was made even more special by the refurbishment of the War Memorial.

This is the Cambridge to Huntingdon multi-Modal Study, which is evaluating a variety of options to improve the transport system between Cambridge and Huntingdon.  The next exhibition date and venue for public viewing is on Saturday 2nd December in the Free Church, Market Hill in St. Ives.  The Parish Council will  be sending a representative to  the Members Preview off the exhibition on Thursday 23rd November at Castle Park, Cambridge.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held in the Pavilion on December 20th at 7.45pm.
