Here is the latest news from our Spaldwick Facebook feed:
Huntingdonshire District Council is supporting the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH) Christmas tree recycling scheme.
Residents are being offered a hassle-free recycling method. In exchange for a voluntary donation, EACH Volunteers will be collecting trees in the PE27, PE28 and PE29 postcode areas between 8am and 5pm on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 January in the New Year.
To ensure trees are picked up, residents are asked to request a collection and make a donation, if they wish to, at https://just-helping.org.uk/xmas-trees. Registration closes on Wednesday 8 January 2020.
EACH offers care and support for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and supports families across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. They offer families flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support, including where their child dies; at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich).
Look what we found! Great number plate!
Thank you Spaldwick village for the support and generosity you have shown in support of our chosen charity this year - neurological critical care unit at Addenbrookes - in memory of the lovely Raine.
Happy Christmas everyone from the Spaldwick Social Group. ?? ?

“As you may be aware this loved historic building and local landmark is facing significant challenges. There are plans to make sure it doesn’t close in the very near future but becomes a vibrant addition to the Spaldwick community for many years to come. But we do need your support to do this – by contributing and adding your greeting to this card you are helping us to ensure the church continues as community facility for all the village.
Unfortunately the pony express will not operate this year and it is hoped that you will contribute via this website instead as well as use it to share good wishes with your neighbours and friends in the village.
Everyone who has contributed will have their message shown on the final card which will be available for all to see!
We aim to send a personal copy to each contributor via email by 22nd Dec”
HO HO HO! I will be visiting your delightful village on Sunday to deliver gifts to children and loved ones/neighbours! Please ensure gifts are clearly labeled with home address, Santa stop number or pub so my elves can help me sort them. Drop off at Playtimes or 3 ivy way by sat eve.
The NEW A14 Huntingdon Bypass, between Swavesey and Ellington, opened to traffic early this morning - it's part of Highways England's Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme. Please take care and follow the signs, not your satnavs!
