New Bus Service

Posted 10 Nov 2022

The new bus service around Chatteris on Fridays, the Chatteris Runner, has been suspended due to a lack of customers. It is hoped the service will be relaunched in the spring after an advertising campaign.

The Saturday bus service to Cambridge is continuing due to its popularity. And just a reminder that the bus will also run on Tuesdays 13th and 20th December. To book spaces please ring FACT on 01354 661234.

Warm Space

A Warm Space is now available in Chatteris Library during opening hours. 

Reservoir

Posted 03 Nov 2022

There are brochures about Anglian Water’s proposals for a new reservoir just north of Chatteris available at the King Edward Centre and Chatteris Library. The consultation period on the proposals began on the 12th October and runs until 21st December. This is the opportunity for you to have your say. For more information go to www.fensreservoir.co.uk

Footpath Extension

Posted 31 Oct 2022

Walkers are advised that the Old Railway Line Footpath and Bridleway will be closed for two to three weeks from today (Monday 31st October) as contractors work on extending the existing made up footpath.

The made-up surface will then extend as far as the Little Acre Fen Pocket Park and will result in a circular walk which will be available to walkers all year round whatever the weather.

Chatteris Town Council is funding the work, which will include repairs to the existing footpath, and is delighted that the link section is finally being created enhancing one of the most popular walks in Chatteris.

Update on the 24th November 2022:

Unfortunately the footpath is not open yet because the contractors have been seriously hampered by the wet weather. I can assure walkers that the contractors are proceeding as fast as they can but the work is very weather dependent.

As soon as the fencing is removed by the contractors and the gate re-installed the footpath will be open.
