Everyone will know by now that David Piggott, our former Station Master at Meldreth, died on January 30th. He was a very remarkable man who is sadly missed (see page 5).

What a relief it is to see spring appearing in the countryside and in our gardens, always welcome after a long dark winter.

This September it will be 50 years since All Saints Playgroup began  and a reunion is planned of those who attended or were connected with the group. If you have a contribution, a photograph or a memory then please phone one of the numbers given (see page 8).

Congratulations to Melbourn Village College governor Katharine Carruthers on being awarded an OBE for her efforts to introduce Chinese to schools in England.  MVC is one of the first schools in the country to teach Mandarin and Chinese culture (see page 23).

This year the Village Fete returns on June 23rd, and we look forward to this after a pause last year. Lots of fun is planned as usual! (See page 6).

There are of course many events taking place over the summer, so do enjoy as many of them as you can, we are very fortunate to have so many people who are willing to give up their time to work for the village. Many thanks!

Finally a very happy Easter to you all – details of services for our three churches are given in the Diary and in the Churches Together section (see page 37).
