Scout and Guide Hut News!

There is a building as you go into the grounds of the Littleport Leisure complex on Camel Road just behind the beacon. Its doors face the field and its own car park area, so you may not even really notice it – unless of course you are part of the thriving Littleport scout and guiding activities that take place there! As the autumn drew to a close, the Hut – that’s what it’s fondly called,…

At the end of March when, like everyone else, we were faced with managing a pandemic with implications for our charity shop, eBay Office and very importantly our social care Day Services.

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.

Why Not Shop Local?

Why Not Shop Local?

Littleport is the biggest village in England – by square miles! The population is hovering above 4,000 but with more houses being built, that number is on the increase.
