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.

Little ones love using their bodies and spending fun times with their grown ups ! What can be more fun than watching mum be come a star and then having ago . Or seeing dad make a triangle shape and trying to copy too !!! Then everyone making a circle together and having a good old sing.
The Circle Song !!
This song is one of my Wigglers favourites. The tiny babies just love being swayed to the beat and hear their special adults singing voice. The sitting up ones love to clap their hands and have mum help them tap their knees. Toddlers and older beam at the fun of having a shout and often take the opportunity to make their own little noise or shout "hurray" as loud as they can
For me I just love watching and being part of the lovely relationships that our built and developed while we spend time having fun together.
It always makes me smile seeing the little people turn into little stars as their characters show. Click the link to hear the song :)
At the Little Paxton Parish Council meeting last week, the Council agreed to review the number of litter bins in the village and ask residents where they think new bins could be located.
Earlier in the year, the Council organised a successful village litter pick which was supported by many volunteers.
The Council is keen to ensure the village is kept 'spick & span' and identifying locations for additional litter bins, will help to achieve this.
