Wimpole Hall Infrastructure (Car Park) Project
Wimpole Hall have ben creating a 10 Year vision and master plan n which will ensure the best for Wimpole and improve the visitor offer and experience, easing the pressures on the heritage assets and environment. After an exhaustive exploration of options, it has been concluded that the greatest conservation benefit to the estate will be the removal of the existing car parking from the parkland areas around the Stable Block and relocation of parking and the visitor welcome outside of the Registered Park.
Full details and agenda HERE.
Arrington Garden Party
St Nicholas Church Arrington held its Annual Garden Party in the village garden on a very sunny Saturday afternoon on the 8th July. This year just like the last 2015 event featured the music of local artist Martin Kaszak who was accompanied by Phil Pearce. The Garden Party is one of a number of events, such as the Annual Boules event in August that are held as a focus for the village community but at the same time raises finances to help maintain the Grade 1 listed church building further up the hill. Some £450 was raised and this year’s contributions will go to help fund a church path handrail and if possible some path lighting in order to make the building more accessible for those with mobility challenges.
The Garden Party, or what used to be called the fete, may well have started some 123 years ago with an event held in Wimpole Hall grounds to raise enough finance for a vestry attached to the north side of the tower. This year’s Garden Party would have been a very different occasion with a BBQ, a bar serving Pimms as well as beer, lager and soft drinks but also having Tombola and Raffle that may well have been familiar. A big thank you to all local people and friends who helped make this occasion a success.

NEW VILLAGE GARDEN SWINGS INSTALLED
The new swings have now been installed in the Village Garden, replacing the old swings which required extensive repair which was not cost effective.
This now means that the children of the village and visitors to Arrington can once again enjoy the garden fully.
Here’s a picture of Tamsin our village gardener trying them out.
