Residents from the village of Bainton, which is north of Peterborough, met with local MP Shailesh Vara to seek his support to persuade Cambridgeshire Police and Peterborough City Council to take urgent action to stop speeding motorists and have a neglected footpath repaired.
Shailesh Vara MP, along with Cllr David Over, has met with residents in the village of Helpston, Peterborough, and joined them in opposing the proposed development of 20 houses which would be built close to the local John Clare Primary School.
Following the announcement today of the closure of Great Gidding Church of England Primary School by Cambridgeshire County Council, Shailesh Vara MP has expressed his sadness at the decision. The announcement brings to an end a school which has been at the heart of the community for nearly 150 years.
Shailesh Vara MP has welcomed the Government’s announcement that Nene Valley Railway, which is in his constituency of North West Cambridgeshire, will receive £669,873 in the third round of Cultural Investment Fund grants. The funds will enable completion of urgent maintenance and infrastructure work.
