Millfield School

Millfield School

As I write this, school has been fully open since the start of this academic year which, after lockdown followed by the summer holidays is great- a long time coming! Understandably, prior to the new school year starting, there was a lot of concern about the impact of the lockdown on children- progress in their learning and in relation to their mental health. I can honestly say, the children have been fantastic! They have adjusted…

Running the Distance! Littleport keeps on running!

Running the Distance! Littleport keeps on running!

It is good to hear that Littleport’s popular parkrunning is still continuing but in a different format to the usual large group turnout, with smaller groups of running buddies. They’ve been actively meeting up nearly every Saturday both at the familiar parkrunning venue at Littleport Leisure and around Littleport, and the former has been the starting point for many a pre-registered virtual charity running event. These events have all been run under the government guidelines…

The Littleport Players Waiting in the Wings!

The Littleport Players Waiting in the Wings!

This year there is no panto to look forward to! From its inception the talented personnel of Littleport’s local amateur dramatic company has entertained right royally with summer musicals and winter pantomimes. This year has sadly seen both the professional theatre companies and theatres go dark during the lockdown scenarios. And perhaps even worse, all the amateur groups have had their efforts curtailed and their local communities thus deprived of home-grown live entertainment. Here is…

Littleport and an old skater’s dream of an outdoor ice stadium!

Littleport and an old skater’s dream of an outdoor ice stadium!

Most fairy stories begin with once upon a time, but this is no fairy story although it begins with that time-honoured phrase and ends with another, expressing a hoped-for ‘and they lived happily ever after!’ Once upon a time lots of ice speed skaters, bandy playing enthusiasts and thousands who just loved skating, including watching skating too, crowded into Littleport when the water on the Moors was frozen… How did this come about? A keen…
