Free Children's Easter Activities

Little Paxton Parish Council have organised eight activity sessions for children & young people during the school Easter Holidays.

The activities are one hour sessions aimed at children between the ages of 7- 11 years and young people 14-17 years old and will be run by Huntingdonshire District Council Sport & Active Lifestyles Team. The venue for the fun activities is on 'The Green', Samuel Jones Crescent in Little Paxton.

The Council is aware as to how difficult it is for children who reside the opposite end of the village to access the play equipment and activities on the Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field as they have to cross the busy Mill Lane Road.


Cllr Jean Matheson said' The Council ran similar activities last year which proved very popular.'


The activity sessions are all outside and are free. There is no need to book. The dates for the children's fun sessions are 9th & 10th April 10am - 11am and 15th & 16th April 2pm - 3pm.

The young people sessions are 9th & 10th April 11am - 12noon and 15th & 16th April 3pm - 4pm.


The event is sponsored by Little Paxton Parish Council and CHS Group.

Memorial Safety Testing

Little Paxton Parish Council will be safety testing the memorials in Little Paxton Cemetery and in St. James' Churchyard, High Street, Little Paxton within the next 8- 10 weeks.

The Council has a duty under the Local Authorities' Cemeteries Order 1977 to maintain the cemetery & churchyard in good order and to ensure they are safe places for the visiting public, contractors and employees.

The safety testing initially involves a hand test to confirm the memorial is stable and involves no tools or equipment.

If the hand test identifies a risk, the memorial will be retested with a small hand held mechanical tester.

Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said, 'The Council will not lay any memorial flat nor will it use stakes, as a temporary measure, to support a memorial'.

If a memorial requires to be made stable, the Council will contact the memorial owner for remedial repairs.

All memorial owners, for which the Council has a mailing address, will be contacted by the Council to advise of the safety testing before the work commences.

Paxfest 2014 will have a 'Vintage theme' and as part of the theme will be a display of vintage cars, tractors, cycles & a traction engine.

Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said 'In keeping with the vintage theme it would be great to have some commercial vintage vehicles at Paxfest such as an old fashioned bakers van selling bread, a grocery van selling groceries, a butchers van etc. Many children today have never seen these types of vans which were of an era long gone.'

As in previous years, there is a booking fee for non village commercial/charity stalls of £25 and for village commercial stalls the booking fee is £10.Anyone wishing a stall please contact Cllr Jean Matheson Tel 01480 476298.
