At last Spring has arrived!

There are many events to look forward to – Open Gardens will be held again this year on Sunday 16th June, preceded on Saturday 30th March by a Plant Sale at The Hub.

Melbourn is fortunate in having the award winning Village College, which has won an important award for the standard of its international education, see page 25.

The Hub hosts many interesting events throughout the year, as well as housing the Parish Council, the Library and providing excellent lunches and coffee and cakes. On Friday March 8th a concert will be held featuring poets and musicians who took part in the making of the Mel Waterlight film project and will feature folk songs collected by Vaughan Williams when he lived in Meldreth, see page 16. The Hub is a definite village asset!

Apart from the regular features, sport, a profile, we continue with the feature on the Himalayas see page 40, and in this issue an article on telephone scams, see page 18, which are such a nuisance to all of us. An interesting look at the big butterfly count, see page 37.

Take advantage of and enjoy the amenities of the village, and thank you to all the people, most of them volunteers, who organise and run the clubs, there is definitely something for all ages.
