Littleport Leisure Goes Live and Active Again

Littleport Leisure Goes Live and Active Again

Littleport Leisure re-opened its doors on Saturday 1st August and it was so pleasing to welcome so many members back to the Gym. The Bar and Café area have not re-opened which means we can focus all of our attention on the Gym and Sports Hall users. If you are one of the many people who are wary about returning to exercise then we hope that the following guidelines will reassure you that we are…

Resting of course is what those in the acting profession call not having any work. The Players have performed two or three shows a year for 27 years so to be halted, by albeit necessary rules and regulations in an attempt to keep the population…

The Royal British Legion Littleport Branch was mustered by its President Garth McGowen and a memorial ceremony was conducted by St George’s Parish Church at Littleport War Memorial on the green across from the church entrance in the presence of our Cambridgeshire County Councillor, East Cambs…

Peacock’s Meadow: A space in the community

Well my goodness, if only I’d got a crystal ball for Christmas! Even if I had I would never have believed that the events of this year would come to pass. This year has turned us all inside out and upside down. And everyone is adjusting to the ‘new-normal.’ Like groups everywhere, the Peacocks Meadow committee have had to postpone some of our plans for 2020. But, thankfully, we live in a brilliantly resourceful community…

Ex-Serivces or Civilians who Support the Aims of the Royal British Legion are Welcome to Join Us!

I begin this issue with a plea to any retired service persons living in Littleport. If you are not a member of the Royal British Legion please consider joining!

This branch has a proud history and the present committee want…

Christian Spiritualists in Littleport

Christian Spiritualists in Littleport

I was inspired recently to watch an old favourite TV show again from the early 2000s, “The West Wing” where Martin Sheen plays a very fair, balanced and passionate US president, however for a time he sat very much in the middle ground not wanting to rock the boat, as opposed to fighting for what he believed. In one episode Sheen’s character was told a parable about Gods assistance. The parable is this; A faithful…

Vine Community Church

Vine Community Church

When the last Littleport Life was being published, churches were writing their articles back in March. At this time, we were at the start of the lockdown when churches had to close. With their buildings shut, churches had to quickly adapt and provide new ways to enable believers to continue to worship and fellowship with each other. Most of this adaptation took place through the use of the Internet with online services premiering on Sundays,…
