Covid-19 community action and resilience

A huge thank you to all the local volunteer groups for their work during the lockdown.

In Waterbeach, Judith extends her thanks to Rev. Paul Butler and the volunteers at St John’s Church, and Paul Bearpark from Waterbeach Mutual Aid, who helped her contact a long list of potentially vulnerable residents by phoning or knocking on doors where necessary.

Lockdown may have ended but many people are still shielding. The government has now paused weekly food parcels, but South Cambs District Council has set up food hubs for those most in need. C3 Churches in Waterbeach also have a hub on Mondays and Thursdays at St John’s Church.

Also, residents who can’t go shopping for Covid reasons can now receive priority delivery slots from Tesco and Iceland by contacting SCDC. The council is also providing funding for residents in sheltered housing in Denson Close and Chapel Close to receive a weekly pre-cooked meal.

Water treatment plant move – make sure you have your say

Anglian Water is planning to move the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant from its present site, in order to make way for a major new development close to Cambridge North station.

Initial confidential consultations with your local councillors about two alternative locations for the new plant, between Milton and Impington, resulted in an additional location east of the River Cam being put forward.

These three sites have now been put out to public consultation, and following a request by Lib Dem councillors, Anglian Water have agreed to a further four weeks for the public to have their say – the new deadline is 14th September.

Residents living in communities nearest to the sites are being asked for their opinions. You should have received a guide to the three alternatives and a reply-paid questionnaire.
