Update on Hilton's 24Hour HGV Ban Application

Message received from CCC

Hi Andy,
 
Thank you for your e-mail.
 
We have received an objection to the published Order, which means that a meeting is being arranged to resolve it. This is expected to take place in early February and, nearer the time, I will provide more details to all of those who have submitted written representations. A detailed report will be published and you will have the chance to view it before the meeting takes place.

Hi Everyone, it's almost Panto time again in Hilton following the fantastic 2020 "sell out" tour which I know many of you enjoyed, this year bigger and better (if that is possible!)
We, the committee, have been taking comprehensive precautions to move ahead with the production taking best practice regarding the present climate surrounding Covid prevntion..
We just want to assure those who want to see this major, superb epic production that you will kept as safe as we can make it, social distancing will be observed, sanitising and cleaning and reduced audience numbers, so get your tickets ASAP tguarantee your attendance.
So, can we say that if you want tickets it will be a good idea to get them now, in the knowledge that if it doesn't go ahead for any reason you will get your money back

Access to St Ives Road Closures

 

From: Stephen McGee
Date: Tue, Jan 4, 2022 at 9:12 AM
Subject: St Ives Viaduct, A1096, Harrison Way, St Ives - Weekend Closures, 2022
 
Good morning All, 
 
I am writing to inform you of our proposed closure of St Ives Viaduct, A1096, Harrison Way, St Ives over three weekends.  The closures will run from 20:30 on the Friday until 05:00 on Monday morning during the following  weekends;
 
18th March 2022 – 21st March 2022
25th March 2022- 28th March 2022
1st April 2022 – 4th April 2022   
8th April 2022 – 11th April 2022
 
The reason for the closures are that the bridge joints that were installed in 2017 have been found to have faults within the joints themselves and concrete, and need to be repaired.  This will mean we require access to the entire stretch of the carriageway and are looking to minimise commuter traffic by carrying out 24hr works on rotating shifts at weekends.  It is hoped we can complete one joint per weekend, hence the 4 dates. 
 
Please find HERE a copy of our proposed diversion.
 
Apologies for any inconvenience caused and if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me. 
 
Kind regards

Hilton's 24Hour HGV Ban Application

The deadline is 17th December and the request is for you  to send an email to support the HGV ban on the B1040, Potton Road, giving your reasons

Hiltons Pantomime

A modern-day Cinderella

We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the first pantomime in Hilton in living memory for a sell-out run. It seemed like everyone had a great time (including the cast!) and made a great contribution to the upkeep of our village hall, one of our greatest, but often undervalued asset.

Was it too dry? Was it too wet?
A review of the 2020 rainfall record for Hilton

Gillian Sheail, our local Rainfall Observer for the Meteorological Office and Environment Agency, measures the daily rainfall in Hilton. 2020 was a year of both dry and wet spells, culminating in the floods of Christmas Eve and she has written an excellent article which would have been in Spectrum if it was being published. Please find a copy HERE

The ongoing measurements for 45 years provide a useful record of the village’s climate. Monthly and annual rainfall totals for the years from 1976 to 2020 are now available on the village digital archive, copy HERE

What was Hilton like eighty years ago at the beginning of the second world war? A National Register compiled on 29th September 1939 provides a remarkable insight into every household in Hilton. Evacuees had already arrived, but there was not enough room in the village school. The National Farm Survey, two years later, gives a detailed account of farming in the parish. There is so much which can be found out about Hilton at a critical point in its development.

I have brought all this together in a book so that everyone can share what I have discovered. If you would like a copy (£7 to help cover printing costs), please contact me at 3, Mill Hill End, or phone 07484 650209
