Travelling Library Service

The travelling library visits Waresley every first Friday in the month. 10.40 am outside the Duncombe Arms.
This is part of the Cambridgeshire library service, so books from the travelling library can be returned to any other Cambridgeshire library and vice versa. Books can be renewed on-line. You can also request books on-line - to be collected from the travelling library. There is a wide selection of books including large print and there is a large childrens section.
The next visit is scheduled for Friday April 6th.


A428 Consultation

An upgrade to the A428 between the Black Cat Roundabout to the Caxton Gibbet has been proposed and there has been a consultation on three options, Of these, only the northern route has an access point east of St Neots. For the 2 southerly routes traffic from St Neots to Camborne and Cambridge (and vice versa) would still have to use the old single carriage road. Furthermore, the most southerly (pink) route would have a serious effect on Waresley, cutting through some of the Tetworth estate and crossing the back road to St Neots in the dip beyond the junction with Green Lane.
The pink route comes very close to the village

The consultation is now closed with the preferred route originally to be announced in the summer of 2017. The decision keeps slipping from autumn, to December and now into 2018, as the Highways England website says that further analysis is required
