Get involved in the Big Conversation about how we shape our NHS

Local residents are being encouraged to have their say on the future of local NHS services as part of The Big Conversation.

Funding for healthcare across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is under pressure. More people are using NHS services locally, and resources are limited. At the moment, the local NHS is buying more than it can afford which means that some difficult decisions need to be made about the services it can afford to provide in the future. 

The Big Conversation has been created to help Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), who buy the healthcare services in the local area, to understand what is most important to the local community. Feedback received will be used to create a set of principles that will inform our future plans and help shape our local NHS.

Local residents can give their feedback by attending one of the events taking place across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough during October and November. Or, by completing a short survey online at https://bit.ly/NHSBigConversation

Litter Pick 2019

Today (Saturday 19th October) 16 residents from Glatton donned their fluorescent jackets, picked up their litter pickers and set off round the village gathering litter.
Ninety minutes later they returned to the village hall with their respective collections of litter and received a bacon roll and warming cuppa as reward.

From within the village we gathered:

  • 15 sacks full of rubbish
  • 2 lengths of pipe
  • 4 used tyres
  • 1 traffic bollard!

Thank you Paul Williams for arranging the loan of the picking kit from the council and to Terry and Jane Brignall for organising the post event refreshments.
But most of all THANK YOU to the volunteers who turned out to take part.

Paul Cole – Chairman Glatton Parish Council

CPR/AED Training – September 2019

The Parish Council have provided further invaluable training to the village on how to assess and provide CPR and use of a Defibrillator (AED).
The latest session was kindly run free of charge by Ray Groves, landlord of The Addison Arms pub and was attended by 9 villages (some coming back for a refresher).
This training is invaluable to ensure that should you come across a casualty you know what to do to and quite possibly save a life.
Thanks you once again to Ray for his time and for the attendees for making the session a success.
If any villagers would like to add their names to a waiting list please let the Parish Council know via Neil Mundell-Phipps improview@aol.com and, when we have enough numbers, we will run further sessions.

Information Booth

The old Telephone Box on the green has finally been utilised as an Information Centre for visitors to Glatton.
The Parish Council has pondered this question for a number of years and this centre seemed a good idea.
Terry Brignall undertook to get the project up and running and the result is brilliant.

I hope you will find time to visit the old telephone kiosk to look at it’s transformation and see all the detailed information, walks, etc. that are available.

It is the legal responsibility of all homeowners to keep their hedges cut back clear from all pedestrian footpaths so that the footpaths are safe for pedestrians to use.

If you spot any non-urgent highways problems, for example broken sign posts, pot holes, fly tipping etc. then please report these to https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/

Thank you for your help with keeping Glatton safe and looking beautiful.
