High Street Road Re-surfacing
We have been advised that road linings on Cherry Hinton High Street are scheduled to be refreshed from Robin Hood Pub junction to the roundabout at Chelwood Road.  These works are scheduled to start week commencing 26th September but is weather dependent.  The final date has not been confirmed but it is likely to take 2-night shifts and 1 day.  The stretch between Chelwood Road & Coldhams Lane will be undertaken on a separate date as there will need to be permission from Network Rail with regards to the rail crossing.
Our local Covid Clinics need volunteers.
Combined covid and flu clinics are being arranged (likely to be 1st of October at both Cornford House Surgery and Fulbourn Health Centre, running from 8.30 until 17.00 with a 30 minute gap at 12.30).  There's then another clinic up at Fulbourn on the 15th running for the same hours.
The team are looking at just over 2 hours stints from 08.15 - 10.30 and 10.15 - 12.30 for the morning, and 12.45 - 15.00 and 14.45 - 17.00 ,to allow a little transition period.  If you are free to help please email by 27th September and we will pass on your details to the organiser.  (Please include a telephone number and whether you are are able to help out at Fulbourn or Cornford House).
