Arrington Parish Council
Arrington is a small rural parish situated in south-west Cambridgeshire. The A1198 or Ermine Way, part of the ancient Ermine Street, is a major influence on the parish.
Surrounded by beautiful countryside, we are close to Wimpole Hall and are steeped in history dating back to c.950AD.
We are a small community of about 180 households and are serviced by our local church, the public house and the village hall. Our Parish Council look after some of our village facilities and keep the accounts in order.
At last summer is here and the village garden will play host to the Church Summer Fete on Saturday 12th July at 2pm. Entry is £1 which includes entry to the prize hamper draw. Bar, BBQ, Teas, Raffle, Tombola, Books & Homemade cakes. All proceeds to St.Nicholas Church.
Then Sunday 3rd August at 1pm the annual Boules Tournament takes place in the Village Garden. An event guarenteed to bring out a bit of friendly rivalry between even the best of friends.
The potholes within the village grow bigger as the days grow longer. Your Parish Council continue to lobby the County Council to repair them as a matter of urgency but your help in reporting them also will make our voice louder. Report a pothole online below or call 0345 045 5212
Arrington village is located on the A1198 in South Cambridgeshire.
