Prickwillow Village Newsletter

December 2022


Friday December 9 at 8pm (doors open 7.30pm) at Hiam S&S Club

Organised by Prickwillow Village Council and Hiam S&SC.

Come along for a few festive drinks, meet your fellow villagers and a Christmas themed Quiz with a prize raffle.

Please gather your best brainiacs to form a team (max 6 per team) and dust off your best Christmas jumper – entry £3 per person. Even if you can’t make up a team, come along and join with others.

This is a non-profit event with all proceeds going towards installing a disabled friendly path to the war memorial, so 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 Littler at

Please bring a little food and/or drink to share.

Proposals to improve the bus network

Have your say – Greater Cambridgeshire Partnership are consulting on proposals to transform the bus network (more services to more locations and cheaper fares), invest in sustainable travel schemes e.g. walking/cycling and create a sustainable travel zone in Cambridge with a road user charge.

The network proposals also includes “Demand Responsive Transport” (DRT), which is a bus system you book to pick you up from near your home, similar to the Ting service currently being trialed in Huntingdonshire; this service would be available every day.

These buses enable passengers to make shorter local journeys or to connect to more frequent bus services and rail stations for onward journeys. This is to try and ensure every village has access to a bus service.

Consultation documents and forms can be found at

Closing date for responses is midday on December 23 2022.


A word to the water users; are you aware that if you canoe/kayak/paddleboard on Environment Agency (e.g. River Lark) or Canal River Trust waterways, then you need a license, which should be carried when on the water.
