We know it's only August (ie Summer) but now's the time to start thinking about keeping the paths etc around the village clear from snow and ice this coming Winter. The County Council have again this year kick started the community gritting scheme so the Parish Council are looking for volunteers to form a team to carry out gritting.
You will need to register your details with the County Council (via the Parish Council) and you will be issued with PPE (personal protective equipment).

An update from Police Sergeant Mark Rabel.
"The Constabulary have been busy in your area over the last couple of weeks in relation to Phase 4 of the Littleport Policing Plan of targeting specific criminality. There are a small number of recidivists who seem to be persisting in their behaviour – these people are now under a lot of scrutiny by our team. During the last two weeks we have instigated formal proceedings against 6 Littleport residents that have been causing public concern; More »
·A juvenile has been reported for court in relation to animal cruelty.
·A juvenile has been charged with assault.
·Two adult males have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and fraud and are currently under investigation.
·Two adult males were also arrested for burglary, charged, remanded and received custodial sentences.
There are several criminal investigations currently taking place in relation to crimes committed by youths. We are sharing info with other agencies including Housing providers, criminal and anti-social behaviour will likely have an effect on tenancies. We are already grateful that the Littleport community is reporting information and we really would encourage everyone in your community to continue to report incidents / crimes as the bigger the amount of evidence we can collate the more meaningful outcome will occur. » Less

This campaign was launched within East Cambs today at The Riverside Bar (RBK) at The Maltings in Ely.
Representatives of the Hospitality industry, Taxis Drivers, Police, Council Officers, Councillors of East Cambs District Council, and the Mayor of Ely were welcomed by Cllr. David Ambrose Smith, Chair of ECDC Community Services Committee.
Cllr. Ambrose Smith stated, "Ask for Angela" is a simple strategy designed to keep both women & men safe. More »
When what is expected to be an enjoyable evening out, perhaps a meeting set up online – and the situation changes and becomes uncomfortable and potentially dangerous, "Ask for Angela" can provide a safe exit from the situation."
Members of the public need to know these simple steps to take:
- Go to the Bar, find a member of staff or just approach someone you may recognise and "ASK FOR ANGELA"
- This will highlight that you need help. You will be offered a place to wait away from the public area, out of sight. A taxi or a friend can be called, and you will be assisted to leave the venue out of the sight of the person(s) causing distress.
- If you are in a licensed taxi, the driver will know not to leave you alone.
- If necessary, the police can be involved.
This Campaign is Supported by: East Cambridgeshire District Council, East Cambridgeshire Police and Spotted in Ely. » Less
