Some time ago I mentioned to Paul Cole that I would like to upgrade the website to eradicate the advertisements. This was agreed at the last Parish Council meeting. (See: glatton.org.uk – Parish Council – Minutes).
Paul has since looked further into this and decided to migrate the site onto a different platform, at no cost to the Council, and keeping the glatton.org.uk address.
This work has now been completed and the site is ‘Ad’ free.
I would like to say a big ‘Thank You‘ to Paul for the time and work he put into this project, which was considerable. Hope you like the new look website.

This years “Glatton Open” will take place at Wyboston Lakes Golf Course on Tuesday 11th September. As in previous years, we will play a Stableford competition (individual game) as four balls, first tee at 10.30 a.m. Cost will be £30 per head which includes £25 for a round of golf, coffee & bacon roll and £5 for the prize fund. There will be a meal & prizegiving in the Addison Arms that evening but that’s optional.
Please let Terry Brignall know if you’d like to play by Monday 16th July when he has to pay the deposit.
It’s always a great day out and Wyboston Lakes is a really lovely course. All golfing abilities welcome and remember: “It’s only as serious as you want it to be!”
If you are a new hog Mum and/or Dad pop along to collect your new family members.
If you are interested then, you are also welcome to come along to the Village Hall and welcome the hedgehogs at the start of their new life in Glatton.
You can now access the new Glatton Hogblog from the website. You will notice a new button at the top of the screen, on the right hand side, which will take you directly to the Hogblog. Thank you so much Paul Cole for making this addition.
For those who use the crime reporting app Trygve, the app has changed its name to the more tongue friendly SAFELAND. The new website is at: https://www.safe.land/gb/home/
We have received notification that approval has been granted for five new homes in Glatton, but don’t panic, these are hedgehog houses. Glatton Parish Council have been progressing an initiative to help hedgehogs thrive in Glatton, led by Paul Williams.
The intention of the Hedgehog program is in the main to provide a hedgehog friendly environment for our little prickly friends. Hedgehogs are a long standing part of the British countryside, but are sadly in decline. The State of Britain’s Hedgehogs report (Download Report) is the definitive assessment of how hedgehog populations are doing in Britain and it does not look good. In the 2015 report the evidence suggests a continuing decline, in both rural and urban landscapes. Since 2000, rural populations have declined by at least a half and urban populations by up to a third in the same period.
The Parish Council have taken the following steps to help hedgehogs in Glatton:
· Engaged with Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity (SWCC) to offer Glatton as a possible rehoming site for injured and orphaned hedgehogs. SWCC have approved Glatton and have offered us 5 pairs of hedgehogs for our first round of releases, at the end of April / early May.
· The Parish Council has approached Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Biodiversity Partnership to seek funding in support of our program. They have agreed to fund us over two years (to be reviewed at the end of the first year) which has allowed for the purchase of five deluxe homes, each suitable for a pair of hedgehogs. They have also offered funding to support the purchase of a wildlife camera to track and photograph out new residents. One condition of the funding offer is that we have been asked to support their research through the use of footprint traps to survey existing hedgehog activity.
How can you help?
We are aiming to make this an engaging community project and seek volunteers to get involved. We require a team of ‘Hedgehog Heroes’ who we hope will be our younger generation of residents supported by parents. If you have a child who would be interested in learning about hedgehogs and supporting the gathering of data from the footprint traps as well as photos and video from the wildlife camera then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a home owner and would be interested in having a hedgehog house then please let us know and you will be added to the list of interested Mum and/or Dad of a future hedgehog family, again simply email your details to email@example.com. All locations will need to be surveyed and approved and the final approval will have to be from the SWCC.
To support this initiative we have set up a website ‘HogBlog’, where the new ‘parents’ of the hedgehogs can register and keep us and our supporters up-to-date on progress, the hedgehog heroes can also help with this. The website is currently under construction (so may change) but you can see the site, access information and even register now at
Please join us in supporting this initiative and spread the word around Glatton.
Glatton Parish Council.
