Littleport Town Football Club – History at first-hand!

Littleport Town Football Club – History at first-hand!

Bev Scott shares his memories… There is nothing older footballers like more than reminiscing. Especially when browsing battered old footie photo-filled scrapbooks littered with unflattering pictures, where shorts looked ridiculously short, and football boots were plain, practical, considered suitable for purpose, and boring by today’s standards.

Now is the perfect time to come and experience the winter wildfowl spectacle at WWT Welney. The arrival of thousands of ducks and swans over the past two months will soon bring numbers to their peak. Whooper swans coming in from Iceland can reach numbers of 8,000; whilst the smaller, shyer Bewick’s swans coming in from Arctic Russia number 3,000. To see the most swans a visit at dawn or dusk is best. The swan…

Those of you of a certain age will remember the Pete Seeger song Turn, Turn, Turn (to everything there is a season). The song has been covered many times and the Byrds version being the most well known is included on the soundtrack of the film Forest Gump. The words of course are taken from the bible and include such phrases as a time to be born and a time to die, a time to…

Millfield School

Millfield School

This has been such an exciting venture for the School and local community. Our Nursery opened on September 11th and I have to say has been an absolute joy from day 1. The Nursery staff made home visits prior to the children starting and parents and children were invited for taster sessions before their ‘proper’ start date. This enabled parents and staff to get to know each other and for children to become familiar with…
