New Community Activity?
Do you have an idea for a community activity that needs access to a room or hall but can’t get off the ground because of uncertainty over income to cover room hire?
Cottenham Community Centre would like to hear from you. We have space available a lot of the time and although we charge for using these facilities, we are keen to encourage community activities and would be flexible towards organisations looking to try out new community projects.
If you would like to know more, including our improvement plans for 2018 please contact Mike Smith on or 01954 251915

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,
I was warned recently that Cottenham people make up what they don’t know. I think everyone everywhere could fall prey to this which is why transparency is so important for government at all levels and why David Jenkins, one of our former County Councillors, and I have been campaigning for the County Council’s relevant Committees not to hold secretive meetings about their aspirations for development in Cottenham. David, with help from the County’s Monitoring Officer and some legal advice, managed to change this recently. This item should be open to the public now, as it always should have been. Of course, sometimes, however hard you try to be transparent, some people prefer to make things up. Good legal advice and representation has a part to play in planning applications too. 
It has been clear since the public meeting in 2015 that Cottenham people, in general, do not welcome large developments partly because they usually come without the necessary infrastructure improvement…

Gardeners’ Club

December is a quiet month in the gardening club calendar, with no meeting. It’s a time for winter digging and ordering seeds, or perhaps just sitting by the fire!
In January, on Friday 19th, we have our popular New Year Party, with a quiz, loosely related to gardening, and supper, supplied jointly by the committee and club members. We welcome guests at a cost of £4 each for this particular meeting.
The programme for 2018/19 will be unveiled at the AGM in February, when membership is due for renewal.
Meetings are usually held at Franklin Gardens Community Room on the last Friday of the month, with refreshments served from 7.30 pm, followed by a talk at 7.45.
For any further information please contact Sarah Dumont
