Online consultation about the proposed tramway across fields on the edge of Great Shelford and StaplefordOct 12 - Dec 7 2020  
A  new public transport route on the edge of Great Shelford and Stapleford could be in place as early as 2024. It was approved in principle by the Greater Cambridge Partnership Executive Board in June 2020.

The proposed new public transport route (left) will cross Green Belt Hinton Way and Haverhill Road.  It could be up and running by 2024. It will cost £132m.

An online consultation is being carried out between October 12 and December 7 when plans will be revealed showing the detailed design. An Environmental Impact Assessment is also being carried out this autumn.

Little Shelford Entertainments Committee (LSEC)

Keep the date for 2021!

LSEC organises the popular village weekend that has been running every year for the last 20 years, this built on a tradition that had lapsed in the 1980’s of an annual Village feast that stretches back for centuries.

We were very sad to cancel our events planned for September 2020, but we have continued to meet and consider plans for our Village Weekend in 2021. Given all the challenges the Village has faced this year we hope our 2021 event will go ahead and be a great opportunity to celebrate together after a tough 18 months for all. The event will be the traditional three days of activities, including dancing and food on Friday evening, a traditional village fete and family games on Saturday and All Saints Harvest celebration, history walks and other more relaxed activities on Sunday.

So, please keep the date free in your diary:

Friday 17th - Sunday 19th September 2021

Help us plan 2021 with your suggestions and ideas

The weekend is in the early stages of planning so there is still plenty of time for the Village Community to come up with ideas and suggestions for the weekend. So, if you have thoughts, or comments please e-mail our LSEC secretary, Jo Boyle, joboyle780@gmail.com with your ideas.

The LSCE committee is also very welcoming of new members and also welcome those who want to volunteer to help over the weekend itself, even if you don’t have time to join the committee. Please contact Jo if you would like to contribute in any way.

We want to weekend to be very inclusive and to have events for all ages and interests so we encourage you to come forward with your ideas.

Ian Beaton, LSEC Chairman
