Suspended Green Waste Collections

The team at East Cambs Street Scene (ECSS) have been juggling the effects of Covid-19 combined with a national shortage of HGV drivers.

Now, with the extra pressure of Christmas and the New Year period, which sees blue bin and black sack waste increase substantially, we have made the tough decision to temporarily halt the collection of green waste services.

While blue recycling bins and black sacks for non-recyclable waste will continue to be collected as planned, green waste will not be collected from

Monday 13 December to Friday 28 January inclusive

Prickwillow Village Council and the Hiam SSC are proud to be presenting the return of the Prickwillow Christmas Quiz!!!

Why not come along for a few festive drinks, meet your fellow villagers, a Christmas themed Quiz and hopefully a prize filled raffle! 

So please do gather your best brainiacs to form a team (max 6 per team) and dust off your best Christmas jumper! 

Entry will be £3 per person.

All proceeds from the quiz entries and raffle ticket purchases are to be donated to local charity Wintercomfort, Cambridge.

As this is a non-profit event with all proceeds going to charity, we are also appealing for prize donations for both the quiz and the raffle. If anybody wishes to donate something exciting or fun to add to the prize pool then please do get in touch with Dan at


For December, OuseLife will be decorating the phonebox to celebrate the Festive Season.

Anyone who is interested in displaying their art in the phonebox please contact Coralyn on 07495 954858.
