Last night the Parish Council agreed to create a Working Group, whose role will be to work with the Village to identify the key concerns relating to the proposed St George’s Barracks Development. The Group will advise the Parish Council of village views and concerns and will help to deliver research and feedback. The Group will provide a conduit to Rutland County Council and seek to influence the Project Board’s thinking.
An early action will be to hold a public meeting to enable the Parish Council to understand your concerns and aspirations regarding the development of the site. The meeting will also provide an opportunity to identify villagers willing to join the working group to assist in their work.
Details of the Public Meeting will be published next week.

St George’s Presentation October 2017
Over 150 people crammed in to the School Hall last evening, 26 Oct 17 to hear Helen Briggs, (CE Rutland County Council) present on the outline proposal for redevelopment of St George’s Barracks.
The presentation was very clear, and though many inevitably felt unhappy with the proposals to build a new ‘Garden Village’ which could be somewhere in the order of new 3,000 homes so very close to both North Luffenham and Edith Weston, it was good to be told in broad detail what was planned and how the project would be run. The top level ‘Master planning’ for the project will begin early in the New Year and the combined North Luffenham and Edith Weston Parish Council team will strive hard to ensure that our voice is heard and that the villages are kept informed of progress throughout.
Thank you to all that attended the meeting and for the excellent and very clear questions that were put to CE RCC. We will add a copy of Helen’s Presentation to the site as soon as it is available. I have attached the initial Question and Answer Brief that was published last month.
St George’s FAQ
Don’t forget that Helen Briggs, the Rutland County Council CEO will be giving a presentation on the proposed developments for St Georges Barracks this evening at 7pm in the School Hall.
The development will inevitably mean a substantial change the nature of our rural village, and so don’t miss out on an opportunity to hear about the proposals directly from RCC, to ask questions and open the debate on the potential impact.
There were some changes to the team during the season with Lewis leaving for the Falklands, Ben Cox joining the team and immediately playing very well reminding us how good a player he is, Andy and James played most of the games and without them it would have been difficult to maintain the numbers needed to field a team. Thank you to all the team members for the commitment and dedication during the season.
2016/17 was a difficult season for the ‘A’ team with several disappointing results notably a 6-4 win at Paston when an 8-2 win should have been the result. An 6-4 win at home to Eyebury highlighted the weaknesses in the team although it must be said Eyebury played very well that night. A 4-6 loss at Ramsey was the worst result of the season.
For comparison in 2016 the team scored four x ten/nil results , in 2015/2016 ten x ten/nil scores were recorded. In the latter part of the season the team were resigned to second place in the league, behind Paston, when out of the blue at their penultimate game, Paston lost 10-0 at Northborough and handed the league to North Luffenham.
In other competitions the team won the Annette Stubbins cup beating Paston in the final. North Luffenham teams won the North Cambs area singles, pairs, triples, and fours competitions. In county competitions Jason won the Hertfordshire singles with Jack runner-up. Thomas , Jack and Jason won the Hertfordshire triples and this qualified them to represent Hertfordshire at the national finals in County Durham which they also won and they are the current Nation Triples Champions, well done them! Paul won the Cambridgeshire singles competition and went on to win the Eastern Counties Competition.
The AGM for the North Luffenham Good Neighbour Scheme will be held on Friday 27th October, 7pm, at The Fox.
If you are interested to know more about the scheme, or perhaps thinking of volunteering, then you would be most welcome.
