“Big Issue” Discussion at the Shelford Feast

A number of Paris Councillors were at the Feast on Sunday to discuss ‘big issues’ with residents. The main areas covered were:

  • Green belt and affordable housing
  • Memorial Hall and car park redevelopment
  • Additional recreational space for the village
  • Public toilets on the rec.

The presentation that was handed out can be found here. We also have a feedback form here. We would really appreciate it if you could complete the form and return it to us.

Asian Food Van to Visit Great Shelford Every Wednesday


For a trial 3 month period the Parish Council have agreed to allow a food van to set up shop every Wednesday from 5.30pm to 8.30pm in the Memorial Hall car park . This business will offer Taiwanese Bao and asian influenced bowl food, alternating weekly between a traditional and a vegetarian menu.  The Parish Council is keen to receive village residents feedback on this business as we will be reviewing its presence in the village on a monthly basis. For any comments, please contact the parish clerk at parishclerkgreatshelford@gmail.com.

Cambridgeshire County Council’s service provider will shortly be carrying out a lantern replacement programme in Abberley Wood. The existing street lighting lanterns will be replaced with more energy efficient LED lanterns which will produce a white light. The works to replace the lanterns will not involve any excavations in the road/footpath and each lantern replacement will be completed within one working day. The effected lanterns are LC3 to 13.
