Father Christmas comes to Queen Edith’s: 6pm on the 6th

Schools, churches, councils, the police and fire service are coming together next Tuesday to celebrate Christmas outside the Wulfstan Way shops in Queen Edith’s.

There will be children’s craft activities (under 5s) from 5.30, then the Mayor of Cambridge, Cllr Ian Nimmo-Smith, will switch on the Christmas lights at 6 p.m. Next comes a community carol-singing, with special performances by the choirs of St James’s, St John’s and the Queen Edith Primary School.

It is hoped Father Christmas will come to join the fun.

Wulfstan Way: the diggers have arrived


Work has begun on the improvement scheme for the Wulfstan Way shops (see previous posts) and if you have visited the area recently you’ll know that the excavators have arrived! Workers and council officers were there too when I was shopping this afternoon.

The scheme will provide more attractive paving and pathways better linking the shops on one side of the street to the other, and there will also be a community noticeboard, extra parking, seating and lighting. Some money has been allocated to public art, and we are hoping to work with local schoolchildren to come up with ideas and designs.

There will be some minor disruption while the works take place, but I am assured there will be pedestrian access at all times. I hope all will go smoothly, but if you have any questions or comments, please contact me and I will liaise with the site foreman or the Council.
