Meldreth Parish Paths Volunteers


Following the last Parish Plan it was highlighted that the fourteen rural paths and in particular the riverside walk (path no 6), in the village needed regular maintenance due to their high usage. In response to this a group of volunteers was formed and over a period of ten years has maintained the paths: laying chippings, cutting back overhanging foliage and carrying out annual path surveys.


This group has now reduced in numbers due to other commitments, ill health and advancing years. My concern as leader and the oldest of this group, is for the long term future of this hardworking team, who give their time and use their own equipment to maintain our rural paths.


It was nice to read a thank you letter from Marion Long in last month’s issue of Meldreth Matters: a change from the complaints we receive. I am hopeful that we can encourage the numerous users of our rural paths to come and join us in the maintenance of our path networks. Please contact me if you can help.


I am hoping for some support.

john.chamberlain017@btinternet.com Pavements Damaged on Street Cleaning Day


You may have noticed the badly damaged pavement in the Flambards/ High Street area. The damage was caused during a visit by the South Cambridgeshire District Council street cleaning vehicle in early May. The same scenario occurred in Orwell not long ago, and then in Shepreth a few days later: clearly an unhappy mismatch of the District street cleaning device and poor quality County Highways pavements.


Hopefully by the time you read this the pavements will have been repaired. The two Councils are talking to each other about how to avoid a repetition of this problem in future.
