Litter and dog waste bins

Litter and Dog Waste Bins

The Parish Council has made a combined request to South Cambs District Council for a number of additional litter and dog waste bins around the village.  South Cambs are considering our requests, but do not at present have the resources to fulfil them.  Hopefully we will get extra ones within the next 6 months.

Bins sited near roads and streets should never be full and should be emptied at least once a week. Disposable liners, if present, will be replaced and any additional litter around the bin picked up.

If you would like to report an overflowing bin, please contact South Cambs District Council on 03450 450 063.

 

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
