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.

Please note that Denham Pearce is now the main point of contact for booking the village hall and can be contacted on 01223-207115 or email email@example.com

Arrington village is located on the A1198 in South Cambridgeshire.
The village is 6 miles north of Royston and 9 miles south-west of the University town of Cambridge.
We are lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside and public footpaths which can be viewed here.
In 2005 a working party created the Village Plan, laying out goals and objectives to improve Arrington.
This plan is now being reviewed and residents have recently completed a new Village Plan Survey to help identify the future priorities.
More details available soon.

The name Arrington is derived from the Earningas who were a group or tribe of people who lived in Armingford (the ancient district roughly covering Arrington, East Hatley, Steeple Morden, Royston, Melbourn, Whaddon and points between) in Anglo-Saxon times.
COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH
Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a locally driven initiative where active members of the community join together with the support of the Police to monitor vehicle speeds using speed detection devices. The scheme aims to support our efforts to reduce speeds through the village.
Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.
Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) staff.
Arrington Community Speed Watch is currently looking for volunteers to help run regular monitoring sessions. If you can spare a few hours per month, please contact our local coordinator Malcolm Barrett on 207522.

South Cambridgeshire District Council Boundary Review
The review of the District Boundaries has now completed and the final proposals will have an impact on Arrington.
Currently Gamlingay is a 2 member ward (Bridget and Sebastian as councillors) consisting of Gamlingay, Hatley, Arrington, Croydon, Little Gransden and Longstowe. The Boundary Commissioned have reduced the number of district councillors from 57 to 45 and so the number of wards has had to be reduced by a similar 20%. The upshot for us is that Gamlingay is being made a single member ward by itself, Little Gransden and Longstowe will be part of Caldecote, and Arrington, Croydon and Hatley will become part of The Mordens ward.
You can see full details on the consultation website here.
