Cottenham Day Centre Christmas Lunch

Cottenham Day Centre provided a splendid Christmas Lunch at Cottenham Village Hall which was enjoyed by over 55 members. As well as the traditional Christmas meal guests were also entertained by The Beacon Choir from the Bluntisham area, and took part in a grand raffle. Maire Collins, Cottenham Day Centre Chair, thanked the Fen Edge Community Association for providing a £300 grant to fund the event. Maire also passed on her thanks to the many volunteers who keep the Day Centre running.

Cottenham Day Centre is open to elderly people residing in Cottenham and Rampton. The Centre is open every Tuesday and provides a hot meal – a lifeline to many – and refreshments. Members get to meet other people socially – for some members it is their only opportunity. The Day Centre provides transport by minibus for those members in need.

Cottenham Day Centre is run entirely by volunteers who help with meal preparation, serving, and clearing up and washing up afterwards. They are always keen to hear from those who can give some time (not necessarily the whole day, or every week). Our drivers are also volunteers who drive on a rota system, accompanied by an assistant to help people get on and off the minibus. The work is highly rewarding!

Brooks Williams at Rampton Village Hall

Brooks Williams returns to Rampton Village Hall for a fourth time after his previous sell out appearances. The evening will be a feast of blues guitar, groove-laden songs and cheery banter.  A must for anyone who appreciates acoustic guitar playing at its best.

Ranked one of the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, singer-songwriter Brooks Williams writes and delivers his songs with an easy-going vocal style.  Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales.

“The masterly Brooks now proudly presents his latest solo set [New Everything], a typically classy mix of blues, raggy Americana and healthy new originals, impeccably played and sung as ever. Self-recommending and absolutely beyond criticism!” (fRoots)

Cottenham Fun Run helps Cottenham Primary School Learning Resource Centre

The Cottenham Fun Run, held in May, raised £700 and today the proceeds were presented by the Fen Edge Community Association to Cottenham Primary School.  At school assembly Mr James Kilsby, Headteacher, announced that the money would be used to buy new books and materials for the school’s Learning Resource Centre.

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) opened a year ago and was designed with input from a group of ‘Year 6 Librarians’. The pupils requested that the Centre should have an internet cafe feel and it   features a row of i-desk integrated computers and desks for student use. They also asked for bespoke bookshelf furniture, lots of light and plenty of colours on the floor.

The LRC is the school’s lending library and is also used by classes for guided reading sessions with their teachers. Pupils can visit the Centre during the lunchtime break and it is also the location for a Reading for Pleasure club.

On Thursday afternoons, the after school LRC Drop-In provides an opportunity for parents and children to visit the Learning Resource Centre to change books, read and generally access resources.

Fen Edge Community Association presentation to Cottenham Primary SchoolMr Kilsby said that the £700 grant would have a direct impact on increasing the stock of books held by the Learning Resource Centre. The Centre is managed by Mrs Debbie Lingley supported by Mrs Davina Garner, Mrs Rebecca Struthers and the Year 6 Junior Librarians.

Cottenham Primary School is justifiably proud of their Learning Resource Centre and the part it is playing in helping the school to achieve above national average scores in reading ability and progress.
