Cambridgeshire Police are organising a series of events to offer the public an opportunity to shape the future of policing in the county and make the most effective use of the resources they have. Local officers will also attend the meetings to talk about the challenges of local policing. If you have questions you would like answered then this is your chance to ask them as they will take questions form the floor.

Join the Neighbourhood Plan team for coffee and chat
The NP team want to pick your brains! As they continue to draw together policies that will help protect the village character in the face of new developments they need to test their thinking to date by inviting residents to meet them and feed in views on some key issues such as housing, transport, greenspace and heritage.
Please join them for informal discussions over coffee and cake at the Beach Social Club on Cambridge Road. You can choose either
Tuesday 13th November between 7-9pm
Saturday 1th November between 11-1pm.
Please can you let Belinda Westwood, the NP Admin Clerk know if you can come and to which session. She can be contacted on
