YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE DESIGN OF THE COMMUNITY ALLOTMENT AND ORCHARD
At the May Community Forum, landscape architect Emily Haysom invited local residents to work with her to produce a design to guide the development of the community allotment and orchard land in Northstowe’s Western Park, part of the Phase 1 development. Having met with the community on a number of occasions and following a workshop with the children of Pathfinder Primary School, Emily has drawn together all the ideas proposed into a concept design. Those wishing to contribute to the design for the allotments and orchard have a further opportunity, in person at a drop-in session to be held at the Pathfinder Community Wing 25 July 6pm-8pm, or via this on-line survey, which will close 06 August 2018. The concept plan can be downloaded here.
To express an interest in joining the allotment and orchards working group or to register for an allotment on Phase 1, please contact Northstowe.Community@scambs.gov.uk

They are now turning their attention to building a programme of activities and community projects for the coming year.
Next Northstowe Community Forum meeting is on 17 October 2018
Northstowe 2018 community forum (7pm) and drop-in (6pm) will be held at The Community Wing, Pathfinder C of E Primary School on 17 October.

Northstowe has been designed to be a thriving, unique community offering and promoting a balanced and healthy lifestyle with excellent connectivity to Cambridge and the local area.
To welcome you to Northstowe and help you settle in during those early days, residents from neighbouring villages have put together some useful information on existing services, facilities and activities available locally. It gives you an introduction to the local area and will hopefully let you make the most of all it has to offer. Also take a look at the Northstowe History booklet.
We hope you find Your Community Information helpful.
