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 November 3rd.
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 to be announced in the summer of 2017. The decision has now been delayed until autumn.
The audit of the parish council accounts for the year ending March31st 2017 has been completed and the annual return is available for inspection.

Following the District Council’s recent “Call for Sites”, there is now a consultation on “Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment” or HELAA for short, where the sites put forward will be assessed for suitability. There is no guarantee that a site will be accepted, as each site will need to pass certain sustainability criteria.
A site has been put forward in Waresley: between the Garden Centre and Eltisley Road, with access opposite the Old School House. Estimated capacity 36 dwellings. To find out more details, go to
and search on Waresley. You can also comment on the application, but to do that you will need to login or register. The deadline for comments is November 3rd at 16.30.
The parish council will be discussing this at a planning meeting on Thursday October 19th at 8pm in Waresley Village Hall.
The agenda can be viewed on the Parish Council page under "Minutes and Agendas"
