ART in DUXFORD

Your Parish Council has a fund to introduce art into the village. Some of the money was spent on the beautiful barriers into the Biggen heritage area, but we have a significant pot of money left over, which must be spent before the end of 2022.

We have received 4 proposals, all very different, but all meeting the criteria for the fund. A description of each can be found in the links below and we invite your comments before making the final decision at our next meeting on 8th July.

We have sufficient money to support 2 or 3 out of the 4 proposals, depending on their final cost, so would very much like to hear your 2 preferred options. You can email the clerk directly clerk@duxfordvillage.com or use the ‘contact us’ tab above.

Dernford Reservoir development proposal

Duxford Parish Council have been asked to circulate the above document.

The landowner has set up a website, where further CGI images can be viewed to get an understanding and feeling of what this site would look like, and where people can leave their comments. This initial consultation will run from Monday 24th May for a six week period until 5th July.

City 7 route amendments

From Sunday 11th April
In response to passenger feedback, we will be making some changes to the Citi 7 route around the Biomedical Campus.
Buses will now serve Robinson Way and Francis Crick Avenue in both directions.
Buses will no longer stop on Dame Mary Archer Way, but there are alternative stops outside of the Rosie Maternity Unit which are closer for campus staff to access.
Frequency: Buses will operate every 20 minutes Monday-Saturday daytime between Cambridge and Sawston and every 60 minutes through to Saffron Walden.
Buses will operate every 60 minutes Monday-Saturday evenings and Sundays between Cambridge and Sawston.
Please note that some stops listed on the timetable are shaded orange, this means that these timings are approximate.
