Make News Spring 2024

Hello and welcome to our Spring 2024 newsletter, with updates on the latest news and developments at Alconbury Weald.

With signs of Spring popping up all over Alconbury Weald, we’re looking forward to warmer days, lighter evenings and a fantastic programme of events and activities.

As well as an update on the different phases of development and ways to live at Alconbury Weald, we have a focus on education in this edition. The building for the new Special Education Needs (SEN) school - Prestley Wood Academy - is progressing well and recruitment is underway for its September opening, and Ermine Street Church Academy is expanding to meet the needs of families moving into the development.

As you walk around the parks and green spaces at Alconbury Weald, it’s lovely to see Spring flowers, blossom on the trees and birds busy nesting. It’s great to see that House Martins have been spotted foraging in Carnaile Ponds and returning to nest in the eaves of some of the buildings. Enter our competition to be in with a chance of winning a nest box to support these fascinating birds.

We were delighted to welcome Michelle Sacks, the new Chief Executive of Huntingdonshire District Council, to a recent Business Collaboration Group meeting at Alconbury Weald Enterprise Campus. Find out how Michelle’s first six months have gone and how the Council is working with local businesses to support inward investment and growth.

We recently enjoyed our latest Wild Weald workshop, Tennis Activation event and our first Beer Festival, and are looking forward to Walk on the Weald (throughout May), Open Gardens (2 June) and the Food Festival (29 June).

We hope you find this edition of Make|News interesting and informative. If you have any queries, or have any ideas for future editions, please let us know.
