Community Led Plan
Little Paxton Parish Council is carrying out a village survey to enable Little Paxton residents have a say on village life & amenities.
The survey questionnaire has been delivered to every household in Little Paxton and is also available to complete on Smart Survey.
Cllr Liz Timms is a member of the Community Led Plan Steering Group said. 'The results of the survey will form a Community Led Plan which will help the Parish Council address the needs of village residents'.
The weblink for the survey is https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/LittlePaxtonCLP
Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said,' The more questionnaires completed will help us produce an effective a five year plan.'
Collections boxes are available at Little Paxton Primary School, Paxton Pits Visitors Centre, St. James Church & The Anchor. The closing date for completed questionnaires is 30th April 2018.
Little Paxton Parish Council is organising a Community Litter Pick to spring clean Little Paxton and is looking for community minded volunteers to help.
The event will take place on Saturday 28th April 2pm - 4pm starting & finishing on the QEII Playing Field.
Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said 'We are looking for lots of litter heroes to come along and help keep Little Paxton free from litter. Litter picks, gloves, high viz jackets and black bags will be provided.'
All equipment will be provided on the day.
Annual Parish Meeting - Thursday 19 April 2018 at the village hall, 7pm. All welcome!
After twenty years of operation the time has come for the Huntingdonshire Websites to have a rest. The general public now spend most of their Internet time on Social Media like Facebook and Twitter and rarely 'surf the Internet' to use small independent websites like ours which I suppose is a sign of the times.
As a result of the incompetence of the major wesbites to keep user information confidential there are also some major changes to legislation occuring this year, namely the GDPR, that impose a significant administrative overhead and costs that will make it not worth while for us to maintain user logon access for such a small return therefore as of today all dormant user accounts for the site have been suspended and will be deleted so that there is no confidential user information stored on our online systems.
We are not going to shut the majority of the websites down but rather let them become dormant. This will allow time for those organisations who are still actively using them to seek an alternative presence on web and free up time for us to develop our other major website the British Towns Network. We will however be suspending immediately certain aspects, such as the Weather Station, as these are expensive and time consuming to maintain.
We thank those organisations and our many visitors who have supported us over the years and wish everyone the best for the future.
