Pavilion Play Park Grand Opening

Grand Opening – Sunday 10 October – 10am

The Pavilion Play Park will be open and ready for visitors from 10am this coming Sunday after a short opening ceremony to dedicate the Play Park to Olive Main, Friend and Freewoman of Stilton, thank residents and local businesses for raising funds, Cambridgeshire Community Fund for providing a grant and all members of Stilton Parish Council and the former Sub-Committee for Children’s and Youth’s Amenities, for working together to complete the project.

  • At the opening the Parish Council will be limiting play on the equipment to 50 children at any one time … if there are more than this initially, we will have a change-over to make sure everyone has as much access to the equipment as possible
  • There will be goals set up on the field for anyone who would like additional exercise!
  • Tea, coffee and squash will be available
  • Picnic benches are in place and ready for use
  • Dogs can be tethered to the designated spaces outside of the Play Park (please note no dogs in the Play Park or Playing Field though)

The Play Park will be open all day, every day for residents to enjoy – we look forward to seeing you!

Play Park Planned Opening Date

Grand Opening of the Play Park

The planned opening of the Play Park has been pencilled in for Sunday 10th October at 10am!

There are a few outstanding works to attend to following the post installation report, bins to place in position and picnic benches to secure.

The Parish Council will let you know if there is any change to this date but we are extremely hopeful that 2 weeks today, the Play Park will be open so that the family fun can begin😊

20’s Plenty for Us!

The PC is preparing its Local Highways Improvement bid to Cambridgeshire County Council.
The article in August SCAN and PC Newsletter focussed on “20’s Plenty for Us” – a national campaign to introduce 20mph limits in residential areas.
Following a suggestion from a resident and discussions with a Cambridgeshire Highways officer, the PC is looking to introduce a 20mph speed limit in Church Street, Manor Road, Church Close, Norman Drive and St Marys Road as well as all the small roads off these.
Village support for this is important so please let us know if you would support such a scheme.
The risk of injury to pedestrians is much reduced by decreasing the speed limit from 30 to 20mph.

Thank you!
