How very quickly the summer has flown! However there is still plenty to look forward to, from the Halloween Ghost Walk run by MADS, Fireworks at the Primary School, film nights, quizzes, literary lunches concerts and much more.
The Parish Council now has three new members and is busy with the plans for 199 new homes and a care home. There are also discussions about more houses off the Cambridge Road and the Moor. We know that due to the growth in and around Cambridge more housing is needed. But can our infrastructure take this large number?
Our churches are planning Harvest Festivals, the harvest seems much earlier this year, and also pre- Christmas bazaars.
There are interesting features on Bee-Keeping (page 39), Melwood Nature Reserve (page 17) and the story of an evacuee by a local resident (page 24) amongst others and the Primary School has a successful gardening project up and running (page 23).
We are very fortunate in Melbourn to have a thriving community, with shops, schools churches and clubs, making this a very pleasant place in which to live.
