A Look Back As always, the end of the school year in the summer was very busy but great fun for the children. Sports day took place with a slightly different format, with key stage 2 in the morning and key stage 1 in the afternoon – the weather was ideal, the children did themselves proud and it was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents enjoying the day; the plan for the day…

The WI Gets Cleaning

The WI Gets Cleaning

Littleport WI has been exceptionally busy these last few weeks, having organised and taken part in the cleaning and repainting of the Littleport Village sign.

It was crafted in seasoned oak by sculptor Jeremy Turner and is extremely impressive – depicting many aspects of the history and life of Littleport. However, it…

From the Brink of Closure

From the Brink of Closure

One day, twelve months ago, I spoke with the manager of the Littleport Leisure & Community Centre, Andy Rutterford, and warned him that unless we were prepared to make a few changes, the Centre would have to close that afternoon. I have witnessed, during the last year, the hard work, dedication and real passion for the Leisure Centre, by the staff. A never ending stream of volunteers are gradually helping to turn our primary community…

When The Rugby World Cup came to Littleport! We all enjoyed our Rugby World Cup activities in October.
