In July, Little Paxton Parish Council agreed to start a petition for improvements to the Mill Lane road, Little Paxton to prevent road closures caused by flooding. To date, 1986 people have signed the petition.
Cllr Jean Matheson said 'The Council has actively been promoting the Petition at Paxfest, twice at St Neots Market, Tesco St Neots and by visiting village groups & clubs during the past five months. The Council is aiming for over 2000 signatures.'
The Petition is available for signature at the Post Office, The Anchor, Little Paxton.
The link for the On line petition is as follows:
Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said,' Residents may sign the paper petition or sign the on line petition but not both'.

They are anxious when the access roads around St.Neots become gridlocked and worry that the short journey to the Railway Station, schools and other amenities becomes a very long, slow journey.
