London Plane tree planted on War Memorial triangle

Duxford Parish Council would very much like to thank both Hexcel and Huntsman for their exceptional generosity with sponsoring the new London Plane tree, as installed at the Duxford War Memorial open space on 4th May 2016, and to thank Reverend Charles Miller for his time and tremendous efforts, as Duxford’s much respected voluntary Memorial Gardener.

London Plane trees are notably disease resistant, and so it is hoped that the new tree will blossom for many decades to come.

The Duxford Advent Trust and Market

The Duxford Advent Trust was founded in 2011 to provide a “home” for the village Advent Market. The Advent Market has become a very successful village Christmas community event, held in redundant St John’s Church and enjoyed by Duxford residents and visitors alike each December.

The Advent Market is both a community-enhancing project in its own right and a means of fund-raising. Money raised by the Market is used by the Trust to benefit the Village community through a small grants programme. More details about this, our work and how to apply, can be found on our website www.duxadvent.com

Getting involved in the Advent Market is great fun, whether helping set up St Johns for the festivities, welcoming visitors, operating a stall or just coming along with friends and family. If you’d like to join in, please contact us at duxadvent@rocketmail.com
