Whittlesey Round Table Bench. Outside of the Queen Street Surgery on the A605 –  5th September 2017



Today, we installed the Whittlesey Round Table bench outside of the Queen Street Surgery which is located on the A605 by Whittlesey Street Pride.  Several Street Pride volunteers attended and dug out the foundations and then cemented the bench into the allocated position.  The donation from Round Table is part of their Christmas Carol Float collection, and shows that money collected is being spent back into the community. Street Pride will now maintain it throughout its period at this location. Thanks David Palmer, Margaret Palmer, Andrew Overton, Dick Green.

The Nags Head Project

Window boxes at The Nags Head Eastrea.

Bernard Gray Esson proposed at one of our bi-monthly meetings a project in Eastrea to enhance the front of the Nags Head by painting planting and maintaining the window boxes.

Upon inspection it was decided that all the window boxes were beyond repair and new ones needed to be made and fitted, as the upper window boxes were a safety hazard and difficult to maintain it would be best to delete them

The project was agreed with the then new landlords and the sponsorship deal agreed

Late in August 2012 the 8×4 sheets of marine ply were obtained, cut it into the required sizes and delivered to Bob Clephane for assembly. The assembly work was completed by Bob towards the end of September, including painting and lining with plastic.

Alan Hobbs, Bob Clephane and Peter Davies installed the lower boxes on October the 5th2012.The upper boxes were removed the following Friday with the assistance of Bernard, Bob Peter and Alan. Bernard placed plants within the lower boxes on the 22nd of October,

The final coat of paint has been applied the signs have been fitted  that say INSTALLEDAND MAINTAINED BY WHITTLESEA STREETPRIDE, the sponsorship cheque has been collected and paid  into the bank.

Thank you to all those that helped.

To Peter Davies, Bob Clephane, David and Margaret Palmer who supported the project through to today’s event and a special thanks needs to go to Peter Thory and his guys from Coates who have provided us with manpower and logistic support.  This is phase I of the project – phase II will come towards the end of May when we will plant up the Plough Garden in red, white and blue. Today we also welcome Richard Hickford from Cambridge and Peterborough Turf who is sponsoring this site. Also in attendance were Commander Ivan Palmer and Pauline Richards Superintendent of the St. John Ambulance Whittlesey. The St John Ambulance Whittlesey have very kindly agreed to help us maintain the site. They are also placing black and white roses the colours of St John Ambulance in the garden surrounding the plough. A big thank you to both parties. We have cleaned up this area of rubbish and small-scale fly tipping and we hope to carry on in maintaining this site. There maybe further enhancements in the near future.  Thank you again to everyone who came along and supported us today.
