These are the latest 20 news items issued by members of the Huntingdonshire Group of town, parish and community websites and are aggregated from over 65 websites across Huntingdonshire. For more detail about the news item originator follow the news item title link.
Further to my earlier post regarding our use of Google Maps and Google's decision to charge us, and every one else who uses them, I have now replaced the maps on our five town websites with those supplied by Open Street Map. As it turns out I think they are better quality maps too.
Once the code settles down and I am convinced I don't have hidden gremlins in it I will roll the new maps to the remaining Hunts Web village and parish websites.
Yes, this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; the 8th, 9th and 10th October, it is time again for the huge Michaelmas Fair in St Ives. Come along and have some fun.
It seems like Google wants us to pay to be able to use their maps but that is not going to happen, they are wealthy enough as it is. So over this autumn we will be replacing the Google Maps on the Huntingdonshire websites with a new map service.
We are currently in the process of adding these new maps to our large, sister site, the British Towns Network and they are working very well indeed.
In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience.
UPDATE Monday 8th - The prototypes of the new maps are now functional on the St Ives Town Website.
Parish Council meeting on 11 October at 6pm (Village Hall) to discuss the planning application 18/01819/OUT (Outline application for up to 10 homes on the site of the Agricultural Buildings, Short Drove). All welcome
