Black Sack Delivery Update



November 2022
Black Sacks

East Cambs District Council are pleased to confirm that the annual delivery of black bags has now started. Households will receive a roll of 52 sacks, which are intended to last until the next distribution, which is usually in the Autumn.

At the end of each week, they will post a list of all the areas that deliveries have been completed in, on their website. If your city, town or village is on that list, but if you have not received your sacks, please complete their Black Bag Rolls Not Left Form or email customerservices@eastcambs.gov.uk or telephone number: 01353 665555

Residents have until the 31st January to report their bags not being delivered.

They state they appreciate that the bags were later than normal this year, and are sorry for this. The delay was due to ongoing global supply issues. We thank residents for their understanding and patience during this time.

Warm Hubs - Support this winter

Throughout East Cambridgeshire


November 2022
Warm Hubs

Warm Hubs

Warm Hubs will run throughout East Cambridgeshire during the winter months of 2022/23. They are friendly and inclusive places for all members of the community, offering not just warmth but a place to enjoy the company of others. Run within existing community spaces, local residents can visit a safe, warm and friendly environment to enjoy refreshments and social activity, obtain information and advice, and share the company of others. The network of Warm Hubs is truly community-led; coordinated and hosted by trained volunteers within the heart of local communities.

What do Warm Hubs offer?

Warms Hubs are being established in places such as: libraries, community centres, church halls, sports clubs, cafés and other places that promise a warm welcome to anyone struggling to heat their home.

Warm Hubs are totally free to use and will provide a warm welcome to all.

Some venues will also offer hot drinks, activities and other services, such as free wi-fi.

Warm Hubs will support vulnerable and isolated people, as well as those on lower incomes who are unable to pay their energy bills without compromising on other essentials, such as food, rent or hygiene, this wintertime.

We believe that Warm Hubs, established at a community level, will provide access to services for those that are perhaps ‘just managing’ with the cost-of-living crisis and who are not necessarily familiar with the systems of support available to them. The idea is to provide access to services at an early intervention stage, to prevent longer term hardship.

Number 11 & 12 Bus - Update



October 2022
Bus Timetable

As you know notification was given on Sunday 18th September that Stagecoach was going to cancel the No.11 (Bury – Newmarket -Cambridge) and No. 12 (Ely – Newmarket – Cambridge) bus services taking effect on 31st October.

However, after many discussions with bus providers, local, district and central government and assistance from the A TO B1102 group all parties have managed to work with Stephensons, bus company from Essex, who will be running both the No. 11 and No. 12 buses. The routes are not 100% ideal nor secured down and some further work and discussions still have to be held but everyone is working tirelessly to get this sorted.

The No.12 will run into Bottisham village - coming down the High St from Newmarket and then into Cambridge via Bell Rd (and vice-versa of course). However, currently there is no Sunday service. We understand that the buses are not running down to Bottisham Village College. Unfortunately, Stephensons were not aware of BVC but discussions are being held.

The No.11 is planned to go straight from Lode into Cambridge and again it is noted that Bottisham is route to the Swaffhams and Burwell and other connecting villages.

The timetable can be found attached here and will be placed on bus stops, the Bottisham Social Club, Medical Practice, Noticeboards and Co-op.  There are many residents around the village that are not online nor on social media so we ask you, as fellow caring residents, please share the detail around.
