Remembering the Dead of Littleport

Remembering the Dead of Littleport

Readers of these articles are reminded that these are extracts of research work I did some years ago. The results of the research are available in Littleport Adams Heritage Centre. Anyone may read the research free of charge but there are two conditions: You may not copy any of the material, and you may not remove any material. It cost me a lot of money to visit, and photograph, many of the memorials and headstones…

The new school year at Millfield has started well and we have welcomed some new members of staff. Ms Dutton and Ms Sibson have joined key stage 1, while Ms Rush and Ms Wright have joined key stage 2. Despite being on maternity leave, Ms Ashley keeps popping in which is lovely – time will fly and she will soon be back! It is with sadness that we said ‘good-bye’ at the October half term…

We are now in our fourth year of Littleport Independent Foodbank. We operate from St George’s Church every Tuesday and Friday from 10 in the morning until 12 noon. We are always grateful to the church for allowing us to ‘take over’ their vestry, and we do take up quite a lot of space!

Welney Wetland Centre – Winter beckons

Welney Wetland Centre – Winter beckons

Most of the autumn management has now taken place, and finished not too soon as the wet weather throughout October has resulted in the Earith sluice gates opening early. Fingers crossed we won’t have to take on excessive quantities of water before winter has properly begun, but it all depends how much water comes down the River Ouse. As the Bewick’s swans have begun their migrations, leaving Arctic Russia this month, the first whooper swans…

Christian Spiritualists in Littleport

Although the well-established Spiritualist meetings on a Thursday night at the Village Hall are obviously geared to local people after a bit of spiritual upliftment, guidance and messages from ‘Beyond’, there is more to your Littleport Christian Spiritualists’ group than you might think. Even more than the development circles, healing circles and various regular workshops led by its Pastor, the Right Reverend Nick Brown and his team of ministers would have you assume. Affiliated to…
