Real trees can be placed by the side of the garden bin on collection day.  If the tree is bigger than the bin we ask that it is chopped in half.

The Household Recycling Centres will also take Christmas trees.

Residents will be informed of these changes via a bin hanger which will be placed on grey bins over the next two weeks.  Find more information on social media sites too. (Facebook –Huntingdonshire Recycles, Twitter – HDC Recycles)

New 40 mph speed limit is now in place

New 40mph speed limit for North end of the village

A new 40mph speed limit has been introduced just beyond the north end of the village to help slow traffic down as it enters and leaves the village.

Cambridgeshire Highways have put the speed limit in place following a successful bid by Stilton Parish Council (LHI scheme for 2021/22).


Purchase of Gala Close Open Space as a Village Asset

Parish Council Purchases Gala Close Open Space as a Village Asset

The Parish Council has purchased Gala Close Open Space from Jelson Homes as an asset for the village and drawn up a Letter of Commitment to outline plans for the land as detailed below …


To all Stilton residents

The Parish Council purchased Gala Close Open Land from Jelson Homes in June 2022 for £1 plus legal costs of £1,195.56 (including VAT).  This was to ensure the land remains a space for the village to use for residents today and future generations.

The Parish Council would like to inform parishioners that the Parish Council commits to maintain the land as a public open space or a children’s play area, provided that the land shall not be used for a children’s play park before the expiration of 20 years from the date of the Transfer (TP1).


Book of Condolence for HM Queen Elizabeth II

The Parish Room (opposite the Church) will be open on Sunday 09:30 until 12:30 for residents to sign the Book of Condolence for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  It will be closed on Monday 19th September for the State Funeral but will then re-open on Tuesday for the final day at 09:30 before closing at 12:30.

The Book of Condolence will then be sent to Cambridgeshire County County who will archive the document on behalf of the Parish Council.

Many thanks to all residents who have provided comments so far … we appreciate you taking the time to do so.

September’s Parish Council Meeting – Cancelled

The Parish Council’s meeting due to take place on Tuesday 13 October has been

cancelled due to being within the period of National Mourning for

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Section 243 of the Local Government Act 1972 states that a period of National Mourning cannot be included in the 3 clear days required for the publishing of a meeting summons.  Consequently, the meeting planned for tomorrow will now take place on Tuesday 27 September 2022 at 7.30pm in the Parish Room.  This will be a much smaller version of the agenda with the majority of items carried forward to the October meeting.

The Parish Council’s October meeting will take place at 7.30pm on 11/10/22 at the Church Meeting Room – all welcome to attend.  A full list of planned meetings for the forthcoming year is attached below.

The Parish Room remains open each day from 09:30 until 12:30 for signing of the Book of Condolence until Tuesday 20 September (it will be closed on Monday 19 September for the State Funeral).

Thank you
