Milton village sign refurbished

The Milton Parish Council project to renovate the village sign has now been completed.

Renovated village sign and new oak post on Pond grean

The work was undertaken by Jamie and Matt of Cambridge Restoration who have replaced the main pillar and most of the timber around the sign which had all reached an advanced stage of decay.

The sign itself has also been restored where necessary. At the base there is a new shingle surround which will improve drainage around the pillar.

This work was undertaken as yet another arts based project commissioned by Milton Parish Council using developer funding and at no cost to residents.

The Rowans Play Area gets the go-ahead

Milton Parish Council are pleased to announce that after a successful consultation, where several residents and their children made comments on the proposed design for The Rowans play area refurbishment, a decision has now been reached. The inclusive EIBE design, which is aimed for the under 10’s, received the most positive comments and this has now been approved by the Parish Council.

The contract with EIBE has now been placed. Since the equipment is built to order we anticipate installation in April or May. We will keep people informed on the progress and of course will announce the opening date in due course.

Quadbikes and catapult issues in Milton

On the 14th of November Milton Parish Council held a meeting with the police and we are pleased to say that from around that time the quadbikes and catapults incidents, that were causing concern in the village, seem to have abated.

The police are asking for anyone who has CCTV footage to send an email to james.lynch@cambs.police.uk and include their phone number.

A representative of the police said “Neighbourhood officers in South Cambs have been working with Milton Parish Council to address anti-social driving in the area, in particular the use of quad bikes.

Officers will continue to patrol the area, engaging with and educating anyone seen on a quadbike and where appropriate or with repeat offenders, using enforcement.
